Community Development Block Grant Workshops & Deadline Announced

On November 20, 2015 in County News, General

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Office has announced the deadline for filing CDBG sub-recipient agency applications for the 2015 cycle will be Friday, February 5, 2016, by 2 pm. The application and instructions can be found on the Horry County website.

The funding is provided through a federal block grant program to assist in developing a viable urban community by expanding opportunities for decent housing, suitable living environments and needed public services. Projects must provide a benefit to low-to-moderate income citizens and/or address areas of slum or blight. The County CDBG office does not make grants directly to individuals or families, but instead funds non-profit and governmental agencies that carry out projects in the local area. Submission of an application does not guarantee funding.

To assist with the applications, the Horry County CDBG office will hold three classes at the CDBG/Voters Registration and Election Complex located at 1515 Fourth Avenue, Conway. They are scheduled as follows:

  • Wednesday, December 16, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
  • Tuesday, January 12, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Thursday, January 14 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Interested parties should contact the CDBG office to reserve a seat, as classes fill quickly. For further information regarding the Community Development Block Grant Program, please contact the CDBG Office at 843-915-7033.
