The SC Safe Home Grant Program requires a homeowner to have a wind certification inspection completed on the property prior to a request for grant funds. The final completed and signed inspection must be submitted with the homeowner's application for review. The wind inspection must be performed and signed by an SC Safe Home-certified wind mitigation inspector.
It is the responsibility of the homeowner to contact a certified wind inspector. It is also the responsibility of the homeowner to pay the certified wind inspector for the Wind Inspection Report. Please note that wind assessments and reports will not exceed $150.
Please request proof of insurance and licensure from the inspector of your choice.
