How the Program Works

First, apply to the Family Support statewide program.

Download Application

The statewide program does not provide service coordination, and all dollars are general dollars. Once approved, you are put on a waiting list for the local Family Support program. There are currently 25 local programs in South Dakota – 20 children’s programs (up to age 22) and five adult programs.
