As part of continuing efforts to create greater civic engagement in Kansas, the Kansas Health Foundation (KHF) has partnered with the Kansas Health Institute (KHI) to create a guide to understand our state budget process. “Kansas Budget 101” provides a high-level overview of the revenues and expenditures that make up the $18.4 billion 2020 Kansas state budget.
Through an intensive review of the 869-page Governor’s 2020 Budget Report, and the 171-page report of what the 2019 Legislature adopted, KHI was able to create a series of infographics to help Kansans better understand the state budget.
The infographics follow a fictional Kansan, Jake Arbeiter, in showing where his tax dollars go and how those flow into the state revenues. Other infographics provide a visual of the state’s major expenditures – or how the state spends its money.

Every month, our electronic newsletter, Health Happenings, features a story about a focus area, grant, partnership or program involving the Foundation.
