According to a press release, SCDRO intends to repair or replace approximately 1,500 homes affected by the October 2015 Storm. The program is designed to assist Low to Moderate income households and serve South Carolina’s most vulnerable population. The highest priority will be given to households with documented damage and homeowners who are 65 years old or older, persons with documented disabilities, or households with children five years old or younger. The program focuses on the repair or replacement of homes for the most at-risk citizens that do not have the resources to repair or rebuild their homes.

More About the State's Flood Recovery Program

SCDRO will provide eligible citizens with safe, sanitary and secure homes. Any previous funds for home repair received such as homeowner’s insurance, FEMA or local charities, will be subtracted from the total. Households served by this program are required to accept a three year forgivable lien.

Citizens applying for assistance should prepare by collecting the correct documents before visiting the intake center. Finding the required documents can be difficult after a devastating event. The SCDRO has a list of acceptable documents on their website.

The program does not apply to residents of Richland and Lexington County or the City of Columbia, as these jurisdictions received separate grant money.  The 22 counties served by the program include Bamberg, Berkeley, Calhoun, Charleston, Clarendon, Colleton, Darlington, Dorchester, Fairfield, Florence, Georgetown, Greenville, Greenwood, Horry, Kershaw, Lee, Marion, Newberry, Orangeburg, Spartanburg, Sumter, and Williamsburg counties.
