CDBG EMERGENCY REPAIR PROGRAM
The City of North Charleston's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Emergency Housing Repairs Program is designed to increase the livability of substandard housing in North Charleston. The City wants to help improve the living conditions of low and moderate-income households by eliminating imminent threats to health, safety, and welfare. This program is available city-wide and eligibility is based on the kinds of repairs needed and on total household income. Two local non-profit agencies are currently administering the current Emergency Repair Program for the City of North Charleston. They are
