There are two types of grants available: matching and non-matching. Individual homes may be eligible for matching grants of up to $5000 each to make specific retrofits as recommended in the inspection report. A matching grant means that for every dollar of the homeowner's money spent on a retrofit, the SC Safe Home program may provide a matching dollar to help pay for the total cost of the retrofit up to the maximum grant award of $5000 (depending upon the availability of funding).
Grant awards are disbursed on a reimbursement basis only. Reimbursement checks will be made payable to the participating contractor listed on the "Contractor Verification" page of the Reimbursement Request Form once the retrofits are completed. Both the homeowner and the participating contractor must complete and sign the Reimbursement Request Form. Only complete forms will be reviewed and processed. Do not send the pages separately. All documentation must be submitted together.
