Northeast South Dakota Community Action Program (NESDCAP) is headquartered in Sisseton, SD and is a statewide nonprofit. The South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF) awarded NESDCAP with a $20,000 South Dakota Fund grant to help support their efforts to update their agency’s twenty-year-old Revolving Loan Servicing Software to cloud based computing.

“NESDCAP is grateful to the South Dakota Community Foundation for our recent grant award, declared Marcia Erickson, CEO, GROW South Dakota. “Software upgrades will create greater efficiencies for our staff and ultimately help our customers with their loan needs in a more efficient manner. Because of the generosity of SDCF, NESDCAP can further our mission of Serving People’s Needs to Promote Community Excellence. On behalf of our Board of Directors, staff, and loan customers, thank you for your support.”

When installation is completed, the new software will provide borrowers with direct access to their loan information, payment history and balance.

“We are pleased to partner with NESDCAP to provide support for their software upgrades”, said Ginger Niemann, Senior Program Officer, SDCF. “Their core initiatives of housing, community and economic development are vital for our state’s continued growth and prosperity.”
