Applications for Kansas Main Street Inside Track program due by May 4

Communities interested in applying for the Kansas Main Street Inside Track program need to have applications submitted by May 4. The Kansas Main Street program helps communities improve the appearance and image of their traditional business districts using a range of services and assistance to meet the needs of those communities interested in downtown revitalization.

The Main Street program uses the successful Main Street methodology developed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as its foundation for assistance. The approach emphasizes four areas of revitalization: economic restructuring; promotion; design and organization. The Main Street program utilizes a four-tier plan that includes: Network communities, Inside Track programs, designated Main Street programs and honor programs.

Inside Track Application Process

Communities interested in becoming a designated Main Street program are encouraged to apply to become part of the Inside Track program. Each year Kansas Main Street will select three communities to receive special assistance in helping them apply for full Main Street designation. While participation in Inside Track is required to apply for full Main Street designation, it does not guarantee selection.

All communities interested in applying to the program must meet the following eligibility criteria: have a traditional downtown district; the ability to raise at least $3,500 to cover expenses; and the support of the community’s local government.

Inside Track will assist communities with capacity building and developing a strong organizational and funding foundation to build a solid Main Street program. Communities may apply to the Inside Track program each year by completing a brief application available from Kansas Main Street. Inside Track communities are announced in early June, and services begin immediately.

To apply for Inside Track, and to see a full list of services and benefits offered, visit For more information, contact Mary Helmer, Kansas Main Street program director, (785) 296-3485,
