Grants to South Carolina private and public entities to increase available housing and improve the quality of life for low- and moderate-income households in eligible regions. Funding will be used for the development or construction of affordable housing units within the city limits of Greenville. Proposals will also be accepted for city-owned property made available for affordable housing opportunities.

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. 

Special Emphasis Neighborhoods:

  1. Arcadia Hills
  2. Brutontown
  3. Greater Pleasant Valley
  4. Greater Sullivan
  5. Green Avenue
  6. Greenline/Spartanburg
  7. Haynie-Sirrine
  8. Nicholtown
  9. Southernside
  10. Sterling
  11. Viola
  12. West End
  13. West Greenville

The Greenville Housing Fund will provide below-market financing for projects funded by this application. City of Greenville funds are expected to be used as gap financing to cover development costs that cannot reasonably be obtained from other sources. Special consideration will be given to proposals that demonstrate compliance with the City’s Minority and Women-Owned Business goal. Credit is only given if the company submitting the proposal is a Minority- or Woman-Owned Business.
