With the South Dakota Legislative session upcoming SD Senator Casey Crabtree says he’s hoping the 2024 session can be as productive as past years.
Crabtree says in 2022, when federal dollars came to South Dakota for COVID relief, the Legislature was able to invest $200 million into the Workforce Housing Infrastructure Fund.”
Through SB 41 in 2023 and HB 1033 in 2022, Crabtree says the state was able to establish a fund to help communities reduce the costs of infrastructure needed for new homes throughout the entire state. Applications began earlier this year and dollars have already been awarded. So far, 57 projects have received investments leading to the development of more than 6,000 single-family lots and 3,700 multi-family units.
