By  | 

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - Rapid City's Downtown Business Improvement District Board wants to make some changes, but they need your ideas.

The BID Board encourages economic development within downtown and wants to award six grants worth $15,000 each.

The grants require the award winners to match the funds and can be used to develop connections between the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology campus and downtown Rapid City.

Erik Braun, chairman, Downtown Business Improvement District Board, says, "Whether you live on the north side, south side, east side, west side, it's the center of our community. The events that are run down in Main Street Square as well as the rest of downtown provide an invitation for us that live and also folks that visit, tourists from around the country and other countries, to experience Rapid City."

The application deadline is February 28.

You can email applications and questions to downtownBID@rcgov.org.
