Sioux Falls housing aid program reaches first recipients

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The unknown is what’s so frightening for Stephanie Bossman.


She always made her own way in the world, earning enough to live, pay for day care and to give her two young sons a happy home.


The 29-year-old single mom, a graduate of South Dakota State University, has never relied on government assistance.


“I’m not in that position anymore, and it’s really scary,” Bossman told the Argus Leader.


Jobless as of March 27, Bossman fought back tears as she talked about the program her property manager brought to her attention — a fund that sprung out of thin air at the urging of Mayor Paul TenHaken last month and quickly passed the million-dollar mark just days later.


Money in the One Sioux Falls Fund is dedicated to housing assistance for Sioux Falls residents affected by the economic fallout of the new coronavirus. Bossman applied for help from the fund during her last few days at work.
