What Is the South Carolina Safe Home Program?

  • Administered by the South Carolina Department of Insurance.
  • Provides matching and non-matching grant funds to help coastal property owners retrofit

    their homes to make them more resistant to hurricane and high-wind damage.

  • Funds are for the sole purpose of retrofitting owner-occupied, single-family homes. Maximum of $5,000.
  • You must work with the list of approved inspectors and contractors, which we’re on for both!

How Do I Apply for a SC Safe Home Grant?

You have to apply for the grant online at the South Carolina Safe Home website here. You will need several items to apply, including a copy of your latest 1040 or other income tax return, a copy of your homeowner’s insurance declaration page, a copy of your county tax assessment, and a SCSH Inspection Report of your home completed by a participating SCSH Inspector like Sea Island Residential.

Applications are only accepted during the annual grant cycle. You can sign up for email alerts and get notified when the program reopens!

Does My Home Qualify for SCSH Funds?

SCSH funds may not be used for remodeling, home repair, or new construction.

To qualify for the grant, your home must be located in the coastal region of South Carolina and be owner-occupied, for starters. You won’t qualify if your home has existing or previous damage. We can help you with the rest of the fine print when you schedule your inspection!
