“The survey tells us what’s on the minds of South Dakotans in terms of their communities, and it helps us shape our work,” said Marcia Erickson, GROW SD Co-CEO. “In particular, the survey tells us what South Dakotans’ needs are that can be addressed through our focus areas of housing, economic and community development.”


The survey has been open for about three months. To date, some partial findings from the survey include:
