The Black Hills Energy Cooperative Investment program is a partnership involving our dollars and assistance in conjunction with local dollars, local economic development expertise and a specific project designed to prepare or improve the community for economic development.
Through the Cooperative Investment program, Black Hills Energy may provide a maximum of 50 percent of the total project cost, generally not to exceed $3,000 on a dollar-for-dollar matching basis. These investments are for assistance to projects that improve the community "product". The funds may not be used to pay salaries of regular employees, administrative costs, infrastructure costs not directly related to a job-creation project, non-infrastructure capital construction or other non-marketing costs. Subcontracts with consultants or other economic development service providers are allowed.
