Understanding the SC Safe Home Program

The SC Safe Home program, a vital initiative from the South Carolina Department of Safe Home, offers award grants for retrofitting homes in South Carolina to withstand severe weather. As an approved contractor, Lenox Roofing Solutions plays a crucial role in helping coastal property owners retrofit their homes and navigate the benefits of this program.

Eligibility and Benefits

South Carolina residents, particularly in hurricane-prone counties, can apply for grants up to $5,000. These grants assist in retrofitting owner-occupied, single-family homes. Eligibility is not limited by income, but the property value must not exceed $300,000. The program focuses on strengthening roof deck attachments, installing secondary water barriers, and other critical retrofitting measures.

Grant Types and Income Factors

While income does not restrict eligibility, it influences the type of grant awarded. Households earning less than 80% of the county area median income may receive non-matching grant funds, whereas others might be eligible for matching grants. Lenox Roofing Solutions assists applicants in understanding these nuances and maximizing their benefits.
