On March 29, 2022, a fire tore through some 10,500 acres of northern Jewell County, Kansas. Thankfully, human lives and homes were spared and very few livestock were lost. However, with the area being predominantly cow-calf ranching and dryland farming, there was extensive loss of pasture fence, hay, and some equipment. There are several ways to donate and those most affected by the fire humbly appreciate assistance.
Jewell County Commissioners will be reviewing applications for ARPA funded grants this April.
The application for funding must be submitted by Friday April 1, 2022.
Applications and guidelines can be obtained by contacting Laura Leite, ARPA Consultant, at email@example.com or by calling 785-577-8660. EOE
