The South Carolina Housing Trust Fund provides financial assistance for the development, rehabilitation, and acquisition of affordable housing for low-income and very-low-income households. As Administrator of the Housing Trust Fund, SC Housing strives to maximize leveraging of federal, state and other housing assistance programs. The Trust Fund delivers funds through established partnerships with other governmental entities, qualified non-profit sponsors, and for-profit sponsors.

How the Trust Fund Works
The Trust Fund does not make funding awards directly to individual citizens, but instead works through a network of partners, including governmental and non-profit entities. These organizations apply for funding in one of the activities listed below, and then use the funds to provide affordable housing to eligible citizens.

Individual citizens of SC who are looking for assistance through the Housing Trust Fund should contact one of our approved non-profit sponsors. A list of approved sponsors can be found under the Associated Documents list to the right.

Applications and Manuals
The Trust Fund accepts applications for the following activities. Click on the activity name for more information and to access the manual and application.
