Recently, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) announced their
selection of a firm to assist with infrastructure planning throughout South
Dakota. GOED applied for and was awarded $1 million in federal funding through
the Economic Development Administration (EDA).
“These funds will allow South Dakota to lay the foundation to make our state
an even more viable place for potential growth. I am proud that we can be a
part of making this happen for communities across our great state,” said GOED Commissioner
Through their Request for Proposal (RFP) process, GOED selected ISG of Sioux
Falls due to their expertise and planning capabilities.
- Statewide infrastructure planning
- Identifying prime economic development sites
- Capital improvement planning for communities with a population of less than 5,000.
ISG will identify 16 development sites across the state for infrastructure
planning through a data-driven process. Sixteen communities of less than 5,000
will be selected through an application process for the capital improvement
planning portion of the grant. Communities who apply and are selected will
provide matching funds for their planning. For communities interested, the application process will be announced as soon as it is available.
