Project 17 — which includes the 17 member counties of Franklin and Anderson counties, as well as Allen, Bourbon, Chautauqua, Cherokee, Coffey, Crawford, Elk, Greenwood, Labette, Linn, Miami, Montgomery, Neosho, Wilson and Woodson counties — already has received multiple grants to help develop regional opportunities and has specific plans to improve the economic conditions and health of the region, according to a news release from the group.
