Applications Accepted for Community Access Grant Program
South Dakota Ag Connection - 05/19/2017

The South Dakota Department of Transportation is now accepting applications for its Community Access, Industrial Park and Agri-Business Grant Program.

The Community Access Program provides funds on a competitive basis to communities with populations under 5,000 for use in new projects involving the repair or replacement of important local roads such as the road to the elevator, to the school or hospital and in the main business district.

The Community Access applications are due to the Department of Transportation by July 17. The application deadline is intended to provide successful applicants sufficient lead-time to complete design of projects prior to the 2018 construction season. Only applications for projects that have not been constructed will be considered.

The Industrial Park and Agri-Business Grant programs provide funds to assist communities who have a new industry or agri-business and need new or expanded access to the facilities.

Industrial Park and Agri-Business applications will be considered three times each year. These applications are due April 15, July 15 and Oct. 15 of each year. The applications will then be reviewed by SDDOT as well as the Governor's Office of Economic Development before being considered at the Transportation Commission meetings.

Applications are available from: South Dakota Department of Transportation, Office of Local Government Assistance, 700 Broadway Avenue East, Pierre, SD 57501, or can be downloaded from the DOT website at:

If you need assistance in filling out your application, contact your local planning district or Paula Huizenga with the Office of Local Government Assistance at 605.773.6253.
