State launches Web site for mosquito control grants There is a new Web site for South Dakota cities and counties interested in applying for $700,000 in matching grants for mosquito control from the Department of Health. The site, www.state.sd.us/doh/WNVgrants/, includes the grant application, a listing of approved equipment and chemicals, and other resources.
The site also includes registration information for the March 15 South Dakota West Nile Preparedness and Mosquito Control Seminar in Pierre.
Applications for the one-time grant program will be accepted by the department from April 1-30. Questions about the program or the program or the conference can be directed to the department at 1-800-738-2301.
