Coronavirus Response

One Sioux Falls Fund

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation, in partnership with the City of Sioux Falls and local businesses, has established the One Sioux Falls Fund, a disaster fund to help residents in the Sioux Falls MSA (Minnehaha, Lincoln, McCook and Turner counties) avoid evictions if they are unable to work due to COVID-19. Nonprofits, the County and the City will coordinate to distribute the funds to make sure assistance gets into the right hands.

What to Do If You Need Help

If you are facing eviction related to COVID-19, your first step is to contact the Helpline Center.

About the Fund

Administered by the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation, the One Sioux Falls Fund will work in concert with local leaders and officials to complement government interventions and future community investments.

"Given the profound and widespread impact of COVID-19, one thing is certain: the role of philanthropy in our community has never been more important," said Andy Patterson, president of the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation. "We know these are uncharted waters. But we also know Sioux Falls is generous and always rallies around challenges. We are honored to work alongside our community partners to help our neighbors during these difficult times. We continue to hope for the health and safety of our community, our country and our world."
