There are more than $200,000 in state grants available to support existing and developing mentoring programs, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and retired Kansas State University football coach Bill Snyder announced Thursday.
"We want to provide financial support to help existing mentoring programs sustain or expand their coverage and also to assist new mentoring efforts as they get started," Sebelius said in a released statement.
The Kansas Mentors Leadership Council will be charged with determining how state dollars can best be spent to meet the mentoring needs of Kansas.
Snyder, who chairs the council, said the group will meet Feb. 13 in conjunction with the Governor's Conference on Mentoring to make its recommendations.
