South Dakota businesses affected by the pandemic could soon have another opportunity to get help.
Gov. Kristi Noem wants to use federal money for up to $400 million in business grants.
The money would come from $1.25 billion in aid that South Dakota got from the federal government at the beginning of the pandemic.
Noem has already designated large chunks of that money for schools and local governments. Spokesman Ian Fury said the governor is now asking legislators for feedback on her business grant proposal.
