Additional COVID relief funds available for small businesses and non-profits


December 15, 2020

Hello, Industry Friends!

Governor Kristi Noem has announced up to $345 million in additional grants for small businesses, non-profit organizations and healthcare providers dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“South Dakota is in a strong position thanks to the amazing work of our small businesses and healthcare providers,” said Governor Noem. “This additional relief will help ensure that our economic engines continue to thrive and our healthcare providers have the resources they need to continue the excellent care they give to our friends, family and neighbors.”

Eligible small businesses and non-profit organizations may apply for up to $195 million in grants to compensate for reductions in cash flow from September through November. Eligibility for the grant will be the same as the initial round of grants. Grantees from the first round will be eligible to apply for additional funding, and entities that have not previously applied will still be eligible as well.

Applications for the grant will be accepted starting December 14 through December 20. Additional information, including eligibility requirements and how to apply, is available at

All our best,
