GCRA’s Emergency Home Repair Grant Program offers financial assistance up to $5,000 for seniors (age 62+) and disabled residents in desperate situations. The money for repairs necessary to meet code regulations is provided by grant funding and is not required to be repaid. Program participants must live within Greenville County, outside the city limits of Greenville, South Carolina and must fall within the low to moderate income level as follows:
*Low - Moderate Income Limits
|Number in Household||Maximum Income|
*U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Annual Income Limits, December 2012
(Income limits are published by the Department of HUD)

Licensed, bonded, and insured contractors that are approved vendors of GCRA will be used for the repairs. Examples of qualifying repairs include:
