Our Mission

Central South Dakota Enhancement District is a voluntary association of local governments within a nine county area  working together to improve the quality of life within our region with the goal of creating job opportunities and increasing the services and opportunities available in our area. 

This association enables the area to have a professional staff  who provide technical assistance in the areas of project development, planning, project management and administration of  services, programs and projects. 

CSDED is governed by a board of directors that consists of county commissioners, city officials, private citizens, education and chamber representatives from its member organizations.

CSDED does not have any taxing or enforcement authority.

CSDED is funded by annual memberships from the counties and the communities it serves, state and federal contracts, and fee for service activities from public and private sources.
