You simply cannot identify an affordable housing development by the way it looks! Many of these homes have won design awards. Others have helped reduce crime and revitalize communities.
They all share one thing in common – they have been built, developed or preserved by a private partner with the financial assistance of the South Carolina State Housing Finance and Development Authority and other public entities.
Affordable housing doesn’t look any different than its “market-rate” counterparts. The difference is what the household pays in rent or mortgage, which is based upon household income.
