Requirements Low-income homeowners may be eligible for non-matching grant funds if they meet the following requirements:
The total annual adjusted gross household income does not exceed 80% of the median annual adjusted gross household income for the county in which the residence is located for the number of people in the household
The home must have an assessed value of $150,000 or less
Low-income homeowners who otherwise meet the eligibility requirements for the SC Safe Home program, are eligible for grant funds up to $5,000 and are not required to provide a matching amount to receive the grant. As with all grant projects, the recommended retrofits will be outlined in the inspection report that must be completed by a participating wind inspector.
Please include with the application a copy of your most recent signed U.S. Income Tax Return 1040, 1040 EZ, or 1040 A. If a household member did not file a tax return with the IRS then they are required to state this in writing and include a written explanation.
Remember to review and sign the Acknowledgement and Agreements page of the Grant Application.
