GROW SD Uses State Farm® Grant to Prepare Homebuyers

New homebuyers in South Dakota are more prepared for homeownership thanks to GROW South Dakota’s Preparing Homebuyers project and the help of a Good Neighbor Citizenship Grant from State Farm.

The project supports prospective homebuyers in evaluating their readiness to purchase a home, preparing to apply for a mortgage, and building their understanding of all aspects of owning a home.

The grant funded an information sheet on basic steps in preparing for homeownership. GROW SD began the project with a goal of reaching at least 200 people with homeownership information. Through a variety of outreach activities, well over 250 people were reached with the information. In addition, GROW SD’s goal was to provide coaching help to 100 prospective home buyers, and that total has passed 130 individuals. GROW SD was also able to train staff in home buying topics as well.

GROW SD continues to support homebuyers in many ways, including through homebuyer education and lending programs. For information, visit or call 605-698-7654.
