Horry County News and Announcements

CDBG Application Deadline is March 10

On February 6, 2017 in General

Conway, South Carolina – Horry County Community Development has announced the deadline for filing Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) applications for the 2017 cycle will be Friday, March 10, 2017, by 5 pm. The application and instructions can be found on the Horry County’s website at http://www.horrycounty.org/Departments/CDBG.aspx.

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 these housing and 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 Horry County Community Development office does not make grant awards 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 two public workshops at the CDBG/Voters Registration and Election Complex located at 1515 Fourth Avenue in Conway. They are scheduled as follows:

Monday, February 20, from 10:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M.

Tuesday, February 28, from 2:00 P.M. to 3:30 P.M.

During the workshops, important information about the types of eligible projects will be reviewed along with rules and regulations that govern the program. All new applicants are strongly encouraged to participate in order to discuss their potential projects. These meetings will ensure project eligibility and provide technical assistance about the application and the CDBG program before an agency invests the time and resources necessary to complete an application.

Interested parties should contact the CDBG office to reserve a seat and RSVP to dobson.michael@horrycounty.org. For further information regarding the Community Development Block Grant Program, please contact the CDBG Office at 843-915-7033.
