Hospitals and community-based facilities in South Dakota have until Dec. 20 to apply for another round of coronavirus relief funds.

The money is aimed at qualifying healthcare providers that saw a loss of revenue because of the pandemic.

There are two healthcare provider programs:

For the High Impact Program, eligible providers include all acute care hospitals, nursing homes/skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities that:

  • Are licensed or otherwise authorized by the state to provide services in South Dakota;
  • Are located in South Dakota; and
  • Provide services in areas of the state that may be underserved or to persons who are uninsured, or vulnerable populations (e.g. elderly, disabled, children, those with mental illness, etc.)

Unlike the state’s other healthcare grant programs, eligible providers for the High Impact Program aren't required to provide services funded by the state through Medicaid or other state-funded programs.

For the Safety Net Program, eligible community providers consist of those provider types eligible for the initial Community Based Provider Program, except for nursing homes/skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities. Eligible Safety Net Program providers:

  • Are licensed or otherwise authorized by the state to provide services in South Dakota;
  • Are located in South Dakota; and
  • Provide services funded by the state through Medicaid or other federal or state funding through the Department of Corrections, Department of Social Services, or the Department of Human Services.

Applications will be accepted between Dec. 14-20, 2020. You can see the full details for each program at covid.sd.gov/smallbusiness-healthcare-grants.aspx
