The Kansas Small Towns Environment Program (KAN STEP) is an ongoing, competitive self-help program for communities to address water, sewer and public building needs through greater initiative and with fewer dollars. Communities must demonstrate readiness (perception of the problem and willingness to take action to solve it), capacity (human resources to solve the problem) and documented cost savings.

These grants require the use of volunteers to match CDBG funds. A 40 percent savings must be demonstrated to be eligible. The maximum amount awarded for this grant is $300,000, with a funding ceiling of $2,000 per beneficiary. The funding is by annual competition. Funding is targeted to professional services and materials.
