SD-DOH Announces Available Grants for Mosquito Control Programs

The South Dakota Department of Health recently announced that cities, counties, and tribes can apply, or reapply, to obtain state grant funding to help control mosquito populations and prevent the spread of West Nile virus (WNV). $500,000 is available for this grant program.

South Dakota’s first human case of WNV was reported in 2001, and since then 2,671 cases have been identified, resulting in 47 deaths. Since WNV first emerged, the state has provided millions of dollars in support of local control programs and worked with local partners to best identify and respond to virus spread.

Individual grants range from $500 to $20,000 and are to be used exclusively for local mosquito control programs. Grant awards will be based on the population of the applying jurisdiction and its number of human cases through the year 2021.  To apply for the WNV Prevention grant, all eligible South Dakota city, county, and tribal officials should complete that application located here.

All applications are due by June 1 and funding awards will be announced and available starting July 1, 2022.
