Coffey County Economic Development works collaboratively with other community groups and schools to provide programs to engage community members and enhance quality of life.

Some of our Community Initiatives:

  • Capture Coffey County Photo Contest - started in 2016 to celebrate local photography and showcase the beauty in Coffey County.
  • Flight Training Scholarships - offered to students annually in collaboration with Coffey County Airport, Coffey County Commission, and all county high schools.
  • Athletic Event Grants - small grants provided to high schools to help offset the cost of having large sporting events in Coffey County.
  • Assist City of Burlington and City of New Strawn with annual Business Appreciation Picnic.
  • Focus on the Future - collaborative planning effort between multiple county entities, municipalities, business leaders, and non-profit groups. The goal is to create a long-range strategic plan for the county.
