South Carolina Housing Trust Fund

The South Carolina Housing Trust Fund is no longer accepting applications for the Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program and the Emergency Repair Program. The New SC Housing Trust Fund Home Repair Program will launch Monday, August 1, 2022.

The new Home Repair Manual, Application, Appendices, and Forms are located in the 2022 Program Information tile. The new HTF Nonprofit Participation Manual, Application, and Attachments are posted in the Nonprofit Certification tile. Sponsors will have until Wednesday, August 31, 2022, to submit an application for certification under the new 2022 program requirements via our Secure File Exchange. The SC Housing Trust Fund’s new Supportive Housing Program Manual and Forms are scheduled to post on the SC Housing website by August 15, 2022. Registration links for the Supportive Housing Program training sessions have been updated on the 2022 Program Information tile and are being offered as “duplicate sessions.”

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 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.

SC Homeowners who are looking for assistance to repair their homes will need to contact a SC Housing approved non-profit Sponsor whose service area covers the county their property is located in. A list of approved Sponsors for the new Home Repair program will be included in the HTF Approved Nonprofit List - Home Repair. The Certification process for participation in the new HTF programs is currently underway. An updated list of approved non-profit sponsors will be posted and updated as sponsors complete the Certification process.
