Governor's Grants Program!

February 14, 2024

“Today, a day that should have been a celebration of the Chiefs' remarkable skill and success, has turned into a day of mourning. This senseless act of violence goes against everything Kansas City and the Chiefs Kingdom stand for. Thank you to the brave first responders who moved quickly to secure the scene at Union Station. My thoughts go out to the families and loved ones of the victims.”

Grant funds are available from the Federal John R. Justice Student Loan Repayment Program for calendar year 2024.  The purpose of this grant program is to provide student loan repayment assistance for full-time local, state and federal government public defenders and full-time local and state government prosecutors who commit to serving as public defenders and prosecutors for at least three years.  Kansas has $86,028 available for awards and will be available to prosecutors (maximum of $43,014) and public defenders (maximum of $43,014).  Federal John R. Justice Grant funds awarded under this program are a supplement to, not a substitute for, personal student loan obligations.  To be eligible to receive funding, an attorney must not be in default on repayment of any federal student loans. For a copy of the grant application, please contact Kim Gerety at 785-368.6620 or [email protected].  All grant applications must be postmarked to the Kansas Governor’s Grants Program by February 16, 2024.
