Ellsworth Economic Development receives money from Elevate Rapid City

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Ellsworth Economic Development received some big bucks Thursday night.

Elevate Rapid City has invested $200,000 in the Ellsworth Development Authority. The contribution matches an annual contribution from the state of South Dakota. The check from Elevate was presented at the Ellsworth organization’s quarterly investors meeting.

The group was founded in 2009 and its goal is to promote and protect the economic impact of the Air Force base.

The state insisted that the local community put up matching funds to help that effort.
