South Dakota Ag Connection - 12/05/2017

The South Dakota State Historical Society announces that the applications for the first round of the 2018 Deadwood Fund grant program are due on Feb. 1 for work beginning no earlier than May 1.

Grant forms are available online at

The program is designed to encourage large-scale restoration or rehabilitation of historic properties by individuals, organizations or public agencies, according to Jay D. Vogt, director of the State Historical Society, whose historic preservation office administers the program.

Grants will be awarded in amounts ranging from $1,000 to $25,000. The grant amount must be matched at least on a dollar-for-dollar basis from nonfederal and nonstate sources. Nonprofit organizations will be allowed to use in-kind services for one-half of their match.

In 2016, $108,204 was awarded between 11 projects, resulting in a total public-private investment of $399,505.

Funding for the program is from Deadwood gaming revenue earmarked by state law for historic preservation projects throughout the state and distributed by the State Historical Society.

The second round of 2018 applications will be due Oct. 1, 2018, for work beginning no earlier than Jan. 1, 2019.
