South Dakota Housing Development Authority (SDHDA) awarded a grant of $91,000 for housing improvements in Rapid City, reports the Rapid City Journal. The goal is to create more accessible housing for Black Hills Works' clients. Brad Saathoff, Black Hills Work CEO, says the grant will be used to renovate buildings built over 40 years ago. The entryways were not built for the large mechanical wheel chairs used today.
SDHDA’s Board of Commissioners approved $2.6 million in funding across the state. The funding will be used for eight projects and building more than 75 new housing units.
