South Carolina Housing Trust Fund

The South Carolina Housing Trust Fund (SC HTF) is a valuable resource for the development of affordable housing. As Administrator, SC Housing strives to maximize leveraging of federal, state, and other housing assistance programs. SC HTF delivers funds through established partnerships with other governmental entities, qualified non-profit sponsors and for-profit developers.

The new SC Housing Trust Fund Home Repair and Supportive Housing Programs became effective Friday, July 1, 2022. The Home Repair and Supportive Housing Manual, Application, Appendices, and Forms are located in the 2022 Program Information tile. Sponsors and contractors are responsible for following all local and state building code requirements. All lead-based paint and asbestos regulatory requirements must be followed on all SC Housing Trust Fund projects.

The new SC Housing Trust Fund Nonprofit Participation Manual, Application, and Attachments are posted in the Nonprofit Certification tile. New Nonprofit Organizations may submit an Application for Participation at any time under the new 2022 program requirements via our Secure File Exchange. For more information about becoming an approved Sponsor, click here.

SC Homeowners who are looking for assistance to repair their homes will need to contact a SC Housing approved Nonprofit Sponsor whose service area covers the county their property is located in. The HTF Approved Nonprofit List - Home Repair may be located within the 2022 Program Information tile. For more information about our Home Repair program, click here.
