The Blueprint for Regional Economic Growth (BREG) is a cluster-based economic development initiative to grow the South Central Kansas region. The plan focuses on building our region’s eight most competitive industries to create a high-performing economy. The BREG initiative is implemented by the collective efforts of community partners within the ten-county region including Butler, Cowley, Harper, Harvey, Kingman, Marion, McPherson, Reno, Sedgwick, and Sumner and is led by the Greater Wichita Partnership. For more information, visit www.BREGSCK.com.
In alignment with the BREG plan, Workforce Alliance and Kansas WorkforceOne brought together education institutions from K-12, vocational trainers, community colleges, universities to develop career pathways that allow students and parents to explore educational requirements and career opportunities in prevalent industry clusters within our region.
