Grants of up to $1,000 to South Dakota workplaces, including nonprofits, businesses, hospitals, schools, IHEs, and parks to create or improve lactation spaces for employees who are breastfeeding mothers.

  • Encourage a welcoming attitude from staff, management, and to the fullest extent possible, other customers.
  • Place the Breastfeeding Welcome Here window cling in each public entrance to the business establishment.
  • Accommodate breastfeeding employees to allow appropriate time and space necessary to pump, to the best of their ability.

The grant also includes assistance from the SD Department of Health and SDSU Extension on creating a breastfeeding policy, use of the Employer Breastfeeding Accommodation Form, and resource sharing based on your needs and requests.
