Contact information for the P&R Committee chair is published in the Ring-Necked Flyer.  The chair of the South Dakota P&R Committee is responsible for:

A stamped postcard, addressed to the chapterís P&R liaison, should be included with the grant application.  This postcard will be returned to the chapter liaison upon receipt of the grant application by the State P&R chair.  It serves as the chapterís notification that the grant application has been received.  If the postcard is not returned to the chapterís P&R liaison, the chapter is responsible for follow-up with the state P&R chair.


Sponsoring chapters may request financial support in the range from $500 (minimum) to $5,000 (maximum).  The grant application must provide details on the specific project to be funded.  For example, the request might be $500 to replace wallpaper in the front foyer of the Peabody Museum or $5,000 to repair murals on the first floor of the South Dakota Capital Building.  When the total cost of the project exceeds $5,000, the project should be broken down into phases, with additional grant applications submitted for those phases in subsequent years.


Funded projects must be completed within one year.  If, for some reason, the project will not be completed by the deadline, the sponsoring chapter must file a formal request for an extension. 


Chapters who have sponsored a project that has not yet been completed (i.e., has been extended beyond the one-year deadline) may not sponsor grant applications or apply for additional funds for a related project until the pending project is completed.


A summary report of completed grant projects must be submitted to the South Dakota Executive Board at the time of completion and a summary of the project will be published in the next edition of the Ring-Necked Flyer.


A summary of all submitted applications shall be published annually in the Ring-Necked Flyer
