Numbers updated on Rapid City Community Development Block Grant

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) – Seniors in Rapid City may not know they can get help applying for medication assistance from pharmaceutical companies. At Wednesday’s Legal and Finance Meeting they got an update from Behavior Management Systems about the community development block grant funding they get each year. BMS Health Associate Executive Officer Teri Corrigan talked about the most recent numbers.

Corrigan gives last year’s numbers some perspective.

Corrigan says in mental health help with medication goes a long way.

The city community development grant for BMS was just over $49,000 which funds one full time and one part time employee.
