Nearly 200 South Dakota cities, counties and tribes will share $500,000 in grants intended to control mosquitoes and prevent West Nile virus (WNV) in 2022. All applying communities received funding with grants ranging from $500 to $20,000. Grant awards were based on the population of the applying jurisdiction and its history of human WNV cases through 2021.
Thanks for all your efforts to control mosquitoes and prevent West Nile virus. If you have any questions about this funding opportunity, please don’t hesitate to contact us at Julie.Ramsey@state.sd.us or by phone at 605-773-8107.
