The Lieutenant Governor’s Office on Aging has been awarded a grant from the South Carolina Housing Authority to administer an emergency rental assistance program throughout the state for persons age sixty (60) and older and who are at 150% of the federal poverty level or below. The information provided on the application will be used to determine if someone is eligible for assistance. All applicants must be on the lease to apply for assistance.
Funding for the emergency rental assistance program is limited. Assistance is given on a first-come, first-served basis. All applicants should complete all sections of the application and provide proper documentation and identification. Any application that is not completed in its entirety could delay funds. Once an applicant is deemed eligible, funds will be sent directly to the Property Manager/Landlord by the Lt. Governor’s Office on Aging.
For questions or assistance, please contact Pamela Grant at 803-734-9900 or 1-800-868-9095 toll free.
