The agency says it received 91 applications seeking more than $63 million from the federally funded program.

The winning communities include Wichita, Abilene, Pittsburg, Lawrence, Dodge City and Council Grove. The applicants must cover at least 20 percent of the cost of their project.

The enhancement program helps counties, cities and other agencies with projects in such areas as bike paths, pedestrian traffic, education, historic restoration and conversion of abandoned railroad lines into trails.
