The Rural Opportunity Zone Program facilitates the population growth of rural Kansas communities in 73 designated counties through the use of tax relief and student loan reimbursement. Under this program, qualified individuals living in Hamilton County could be eligible to receive Kansas state income tax abatements, and student loan reimbursements provided by both the county and state on a matched basis. Local matching funds for student loan reimbursement are contributed by Hamilton County and the City of Syracuse.
The director of the Rural Development Division of the Kansas Department of Commerce is responsible for the program. The director establishes criteria, subject to the provisions of the statute, to determine eligibility of resident individuals.
