Housing Partners/ Developers Program

Annually, the Greenville County Redevelopment Authority (GCRA) allocates a portion of Greenville County's entitlement fund from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on HOME and Community Development Block Grant for Housing Development and Financial Assistance Application for Affordable Housing Partners and Providers. The funds are used for the expansion of supply of decent, safe, sanitary and affordable housing for low and moderate income persons in Greenville County, outside the City limits of Greenville. The funds must be made available to benefit individuals and families whose income does not exceed 80 percent of the area median income. At least 15 percent of the county's HOME funds are set aside for Certified Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) to increase the supply of affordable housing in the county. A portion of the county's HOME /CDBG funds are made available to other housing providers or developers, as gap fund to their housing development projects in the county. The eligible activities for the funds are acquisition of real property, acquisition and new construction of housing units, acquisition and rehabilitation of existing housing units, new construction of housing units, rehabilitation of existing housing units and direct assistance to first-time homebuyers.

Applications are selected for funding based upon an evaluation process which includes completeness, eligibility, competitiveness, feasibility reviews, readiness to proceed and recommendations as detailed in the RFP/application packet. The GCRA reserves the right to award all, a portion of, or none of the program funds requested. Selections are also made in compliance with all pertinent statutory requirements and furtherance of the County's housing goals, indicated in Greenville County 2015 - 2019 Consolidated Plan, including but not limited to preservation of affordable housing; community revitalization; green building technologies and practices; and ability to leverage GCRA funds with other funding sources. Applicants should refer to the application form to determine eligibility and submission requirements.
