Horry County to Accept Applications for Community Development Block Grant and Emergency Solutions Grant Projects

Horry County is now accepting applications from non-profit organizations for eligible Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) projects for the 2020 funding cycle. A total of $225,000 in CDBG and $175,000 in ESG funding will be made available for eligible projects.

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds are provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in order to improve local communities by providing decent housing, improved infrastructure, public facilities and services, and improved economic opportunities. Applications for public service and public facility projects must primarily serve low to moderate-income persons. A workshop will be held on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, from 9:00 A.M. to 10:30 A.M.

Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds are provided by HUD to assist projects that benefit homeless persons and individuals at risk of homelessness. Qualifying non-profit organizations may apply for funding for eligible projects through ESG. While a public workshop will not be held for ESG project applications, questions may be directed to Michael Dobson.

For more information, contact Horry County Community Development. Applications are available for download on the Horry County Community Development website.

Damage Assessment Begins This Week

County officials are assessing the damage to both residential and commercial structures to determine the impact of recent flooding in our area. This evaluation plays a critical role in acquiring state and federal financial assistance to assist the region’s disaster recovery efforts.

To ensure planning efforts are based on comprehensive data regarding storm and flood impacts, Horry County officials are requesting that citizens report their property damage information from the current flood event.

The Property Damage Self-Reporting Tool, located at https://www.horrycounty.org/, allows owners and renters to inform the County of the location, owner, extent of damage, and status of the affected property. The data and photos reported through this website will help the county to assess the comprehensive impact of recent flooding, and to determine the best long-term recovery strategies for affected communities.

In addition, community members should be aware that additional County crews including damage assessment teams will be in affected areas this week.
