“Make rural Kansas your new home!” is the call-out from the Kansas Department of Commerce’s Rural Opportunity Zone (ROZ) program.

The offer: a higher quality of life, help repaying student loans and a lower cost of living.

The ROZ program includes 77 rural Kansas counties authorized to offer either or both of the following incentives to new full-time residents:

  • Up to $15,000 in student loan repayments over five years
  • State income tax waivers for up to five years

Applicants for student loan repayment must have an associate’s, bachelor’s or graduate degree and have taken up residence in a ROZ county after 2011.
