Strategic Housing Trust Fund – A new tool in Rapid City’s toolkit

The need for housing options is not a new problem or one that is unique to Rapid City, but leaders in philanthropy, government, business, and the housing industry are working together on new and unique approaches to addressing the issue locally. One of these new approaches is the development of the Strategic Housing Trust Fund at the Black Hills Area Community Foundation.  This fund is an additional resource available to help increase our workforce housing inventory.

Through the generosity of a donor of the Black Hills Area Community Foundation, contributions from individual donors will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000, adding a total of $100,000 to add to the Strategic Housing Trust Fund.
