In this post, you’ll learn more about the SC Safe Home Program and how it can benefit you.
The South Carolina Safe Home Program
The South Carolina Safe Home program, administered by the South Carolina Department of Insurance, offers grants to qualified homeowners as an incentive to increase their property’s resistance to hurricanes and high winds. In addition to better protecting homeowners and their belongings, the improvements covered by the program result in less property damage, lower or fewer insurance claims, and reduced insurance premiums for all South Carolinians. Note that these grants are restricted to certain types of retrofits, home repair and improvements, and can’t be used for new construction.
Qualified homeowners in the low- to moderate-income bracket can receive a $5,000 grant that can be used to retrofit and strengthen a roof. Recently, the program has also been extended to those with higher incomes, providing a dollar-for-dollar matching grant for improvements up to $4,000.
