Deadline to Apply for Upcoming Community Development Block Grant Application Cycle on February 24, 2021
Community Development Office to Host Training Workshops for Applicants ahead of the Deadline
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. Federal law requires that community development grant funds primarily benefit low and moderate-income persons. Funds may also be used for activities that help prevent or eliminate slum or blight, or for projects that meet urgent community needs.
The 2021–2022 funding round will focus on Public Services and Public Facilities. Provision of public services (including labor, supplies, and materials) including but not limited to those concerned with employment, crime prevention, child care, health, drug abuse, education, fair housing counseling, energy conservation, homebuyer down payment assistance, or recreational needs will be considered for funding. Public facilities include all facilities that are publicly-owned, or that are owned by a non-profit organization and are open to the public. Eligible projects may include but are not limited to, the rehabilitation of public facilities.
You are invited to submit an application to Horry County Community Development, located at 128-B Professional Park Drive, Conway, SC 29526. Applications are due no later than February 24, 2021, at 5 PM to be eligible for funding consideration.
An additional virtual workshop will be held on February 18, 2021, at 1 p.m. for applicants considering an application specifically related to COVID-19 relief. A link to the virtual session will be posted on the Community Development website, prior to the workshop. It will also be broadcast on the Horry County Government Facebook Page and Government Access television channel.
Horry County Government COVID 19 Operations Update
Following the guidance from Governor McMaster and state agencies, Horry County will allow public access to its buildings with the best safety practices being implemented. Safety measures will include:

Anyone planning to visit a County building should be prepared to check in with staff located at the entrance to the facility. Visitors may be asked to wait outside the office or facility depending on the capacity of the facility.
County officials remind everyone to continue to follow CDC and S.C. DHEC safety guidelines as well as Governor McMaster’s executive orders that remain in effect.
Circuit Court and Family Court cases will not be heard in person until further notice, with the exception of emergency situations.
