State Historical Society announces Spring Deadwood Fund grant applications

The South Dakota State Historical Society announces that applications for the first round of the 2022 Deadwood Fund grant program are due February 1, 2022, for work starting no earlier than May 1, 2022.

Grant forms are available online at opportunities.aspx.

The program is designed to encourage the restoration or rehabilitation of historic properties by individuals, organizations or public bodies, according to State Historian Ben Jones, director of the State Historical Society, whose office of historic preservation administers the program.

Grants will be awarded in amounts ranging from $ 1,000 to $ 25,000. The amount of the grant must be matched at least on a dollar-for-dollar basis from non-federal and non-state sources. Non-profit organizations will be allowed to use in-kind services for half of their match.

In 2020, $ 111,250 was awarded among eight projects, which had matching funds of $ 432,524. The resulting total public-private investment was $ 543,774.

Funding for the program comes from Deadwood Game revenues earmarked by state law for historic preservation projects statewide and distributed by the State Historical Society.

The second round of applications for 2022 will be due on October 1, 2022, for work starting no earlier than January 1, 2023.
