Health care facilities in rural parts of South Dakota can now apply for $10,000 incentives from the state to attract employees.
The $10,000 goes to employees who have spent three years in communities with less than 10,000 people.
Funding for the incentives is split between the state and the health care employer. Facilities in smaller communities pay a smaller share.
The Rural Healthcare Facility Recruitment Assistance Program is part of a state initiative that began in 2012.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard says it's tough for rural areas to recruit health professionals. The program has offered incentives in 49 towns in the state to dietitians, nurses and occupational therapists and other professionals.
Applications are available through the state Department of Health.
