The City of Wichita is applying for nearly $1 million in federal grants that would go toward services for low-income individuals.

The city is asking for $943,594 in Community Service Block Grants, which are provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and administered by the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation.

Nearly half of the funding would go toward the Wichita Sedgwick County Community Action Partnership, which helps families living in public or Section 8 housing.

Kansas is getting nearly $640,000 in federal funds for a technical training program for Topeka Correctional Facility inmates.

The Kansas Department of Commerce, which received the grant, says the money will fund Certified Production Training courses at Washburn Institute of Technology.

The classes work to prepare inmates for jobs when they're released from prison.

The Commerce Department says it's working with the state Department of Corrections and Washburn University in administering the grant.
