The Rapid City Council approved $75,000 for drainage improvements for Youth and Family Services at their May 1st meeting. However, the other side of the agenda item, funding for Freeland Ranch's affordable housing development, has been continued to the May 15th meeting. The funding will come from Community Development Block Grant money. The Rapid City Journal notes that the grant has not been released to the city, as it is a federal grant. President Trump's budget request removed the program, but the current spending bill includes it.
