Spring applications for the Deadwood Fund grant program are now open, according to a news release by the State of South Dakota. Applications will be accepted until February 1, 2017.
Awards ranging from $1,000 to $25,000 will be awarded for historic restoration and rehabilitation projects. Applicants are required to match funding on a dollar-for-dollar basis, while non-profit applicants can contribute up to half of their match funds with in-kind offerings.
The grant program is funded through gaming revenue in Deadwood which is distributed through the South Dakota State Historical Society. Last year, the state awarded $113,744 through the program with $297,162 contributed through matching contributions.
