Charleston County receives grant funding annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to facilitate resources that develop viable communities. Eligible applications must fall within priority goals in order to be considered for funding. A funding conference and Request for Applications (RFA) is generally released annually. The RFA is accessible through the Charleston County Procurement Department and is an extremely competitive process. Opportunities are available in the following funding streams for organizations that provide services to Charleston County low-to-moderate income residents:
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) - CDBG provides opportunities for towns, nonprofits, and faith-based organizations to carry out a wide range of community development activities directed toward neighborhood revitalization, economic development, and improved community facilities, infrastructure and public services.
Emergency Solutions Grant Program (ESG) - This program funds agencies that respond to the immediate housing needs of at-risk and homeless populations through street outreach, emergency shelter, homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing.
The Community Services Department has limited funding available for Charleston County residents living in owner-occupied housing and in need of an upgrade to existing well and or septic systems. All applicants are required to go through a federal certification process to determine eligibility mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Applications are available online by clicking on the following links:
If you want to request an existing well/septic system upgrade application by mail or have questions, contact the Community Services Department.
