Individuals seeking repairs to single family houses or mobile homes that were damaged by Hurricane Florence can visit https://florence.scstormrecovery.com/florence-housing-recovery/#how-to-apply to apply. Citizens can also apply in person at 2543 East Hwy 76, Suite 110,Marion, SC 29571.
According to Joe Boyes, Deputy Director of the Disaster Recovery Office, the eight eligible counties for assistance are Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Georgetown, Horry, Marlboro, and Marion.
The Hurricane Florence recovery program also includes home buyouts for citizens located in the floodplain in Dillon, Horry, and Marion Counties. These citizens should apply for the single-family repair program and they will be notified of potential buyout eligibility once the environmental review process confirms the home is in a floodplain. The buyout program is restricted to these three counties because HUD has identified them as most impacted and distressed as a result of Hurricane Florence.
Owners of rental housing located in the eight eligible counties can apply to participate in the Hurricane Florence rental repair program. The program will repair up to two units with a cap of $50,000 in repairs for each unit. Owners must agree to rent the homes to tenants that are 80% or below the Area Median Income for five years after the repairs are complete. Call 844-410-8560 for additional details on participating in the rental housing repair program.
Horne LLP, will be conducting additional mobile intakes in the eligible counties over the next several months. Upcoming mobile intake sites can be found at: https://florence.scstormrecovery.com/intake-centers/
