KC Rising

The Mid-America Regional Council   (Kansas City)


Kansas City NNIP Partner Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) has joined together with regional partners to coordinate a 20+ year plan for economic growth. KC Rising addresses large community economic development challenges with the goal of pushing the Kansas City region to become a top-10 metro among its peers by 2025 in three “Big Dot” areas: metropolitan gross domestic product (GDP), quality jobs, and median household income. KC Rising has identified three main systems driving economic prosperty-- Trade, Ideas and People. Initiatives and strategies (found here) target each of the three systems.
