Horry County Home Consortium Competitive Application for Homeowner Projects & Tenant Based Rental Assistance is Now Open

The Horry County HOME Consortium is seeking applications under the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) for homeowner projects and tenant based rental assistance projects. This application process will focus on homeowner construction projects as well as Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA).  

HOME funds may be used to develop affordable homeownership housing through the acquisition, new construction, reconstruction, or rehabilitation of affordable housing. Activities may include real property acquisition, site improvements, new construction, rehabilitation, reconstruction, conversion, and other expenses including financing costs and temporary relocation expenses of any households, businesses, or organizations.

The TBRA program provides for payments to make up the difference between what a household can afford to pay for housing and the local rent standard. TBRA funds may be used to provide rental assistance to help pay the cost of monthly rent and utility costs, and to pay security deposit assistance to tenants regardless of whether rental and utility subsidies are being provided. Utility deposit assistance may be provided only in conjunction with rental assistance subsidy or security deposit assistance, and cannot be a stand-alone TBRA activity.

The deadline for applications May 31, 2022 at 5 PM.

Additionally, applications for CHDO certification and CHDO operating assistance are available for qualifying organizations with a CHDO-eligible project submission. Applications and reference documentation are also available at: A virtual workshop will be held May 12, 2022 at 10 a.m. for organizations interested in submitting an application.

A link to the virtual session will be posted on the Community Development website,, prior to the workshop.
