Denny Sanford pledges $1 million to One SF Fund; Council allocates $250K, eyes $750K more


Tuesday night’s Sioux Falls City Council meeting brought new developments concerning the One Sioux Falls Fund set up to help people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City Council gave approval to giving as much as $1 million to the One Sioux Falls Fund, which works to help people “avoid evictions.” $250,000 has already been allocated from the city’s housing fund. There could be a lot more on the way, as we learned from Mayor Paul TenHaken.

“I had a discussion with Denny Sanford over the weekend, and Denny would like to match the city’s million-dollar contribution with another million dollars for the fund,” TenHaken said.

Later in the meeting, the Council unanimously decided to advance an ordinance that would move $750,000 more to the One Sioux Falls Fund. That now moves on to a second reading.

According to the City of Sioux Falls, $166,000 has already been approved to go out which will help 277 families. You can apply here.
