Housing Rehabilitation Call for Applications

Sumter County Regional HOME Consortium
Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Call for Applications

Assistance is available to eligible homeowners in Clarendon, Kershaw, and Lee Counties to cover the cost of repairs and improvements necessary to bring homes to applicable standards for decent, safe and sanitary housing as required by applicable codes. This program is not intended for minor repairs, remodeling, additions, or cosmetic improvements. Eligible applicants must have incomes equal to or less than 80% of the median income level for the county in which they live.
Assistance will be available to eligible homeowners subject to availability of funds. It is expected that there will be more applicants than funding available for this program. Preliminary applications will be reviewed and prioritized according to income level, extent of need, and other factors as determined by the Sumter County Regional HOME Consortium Board of Directors. Those who are not selected in the current application cycle will need to re-apply in future application rounds.
The application period will begin August 3, 2016 and remain open until September 2, 2016. Please contact Ms. Sharon Durden at (803) 774-1988 to provide preliminary household information and begin the application process. Additional information about the application requirements and the program will be provided to households selected for assistance.
