Grants to Greenville, South Carolina nonprofit organizations to increase available housing for low- and moderate-income households. Funding will be used for the development or construction of affordable housing units within designated neighborhoods in the City.
During this grant period, the City will receive and administer funding from a variety of sources, including but not limited to Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership Act (HOME) funds to assist in improving the quality of life among the City’s low- and moderate-income citizens.
In accordance with Community Development goals and objectives, funding will be provided to develop housing or provide owner-occupied rehabilitation programs for low- and moderate-income families whose incomes do not exceed 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI). Proposals must comply with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requirements and criteria listed in 24 CFR Part 570 and 24 CFR Part 92.
The City of Greenville is committed to the redevelopment of its neighborhoods. Over the years, a number of neighborhoods have witnessed a decline in population and a deterioration of housing stock. In response, the City has adopted a neighborhood master planning approach for improving neighborhoods, along with an aggressive capital improvement program. The City’s commitment encourages a “live-work” environment, supported by a mix of housing types reflecting a variety of income levels. The City’s Community Development emphasis will remain on providing housing opportunities for low- to moderate-income families.
Residents, property owners, businesses and other stakeholders have come together in several neighborhoods to create and adopt Neighborhood Master Plans. The overarching goal of these plans is to create a vibrant neighborhood encompassing a variety of housing types and incomes, while remaining sensitive to the neighborhood’s identity. The City’s Community Development efforts in redevelopment will reclaim vacant parcels, recycle blighted structures and repair and/or develop infrastructure. In addition, Community Development’s comprehensive neighborhood leadership, economic development, job training and housing counseling programs work in conjunction with redevelopment efforts to ensure residents play an active role in the revitalization of their neighborhood and are better positioned for home ownership.
