The Affordable Housing Coalition of South Carolina is a policy and advocacy group dedicated to the creation, preservation and improvement of affordable/workforce housing for all South Carolinians. Founded in 1991 as a 501(c)(3) organization, we are the primary advocates for affordable housing for all South Carolina residents, providing a forum for communication, education, and action among our members to create and improve affordable housing for working families, special needs groups, and individuals. We are the only professional association in South Carolina representing ALL aspects of the affordable/workforce housing industry.
Now that Hurricane Irma has passed throughout the state of South Carolina, the South Carolina State Housing Finance and Development Authority (Authority) is asking for your cooperation in keeping us informed of any storm related damage to any Project-Based Section 8, Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, Tax Exempt Bond, HOME, Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) or Housing Trust Fund properties for which the Authority has either Project-Based Contract Administration or Compliance Monitoring oversight.
Once you have assessed your properties, please let us know if you have sustained any significant damages, have displaced families, or impacts to you or your staff. If any families are displaced, please let us know the following information as soon as it is possible:
1. Number of units/families,
2. Type of damage, and
3. Whether families will be rehoused quickly or are staying in a shelter.
Please provide the requested information as soon as possible as it allows us to stay updated with property damages as well as answer questions from HUD and other administrative agencies that request this information from us. Please be sure to provide the name of your point of contact, their e-mail address and telephone number so that we may follow-up with you concerning the status of your property.

The AHC of SC is not a direct service provider. That means we do not lease or sell housing units, provide funds for emergency housing, or assist with down payments. If you need help in those areas please begin your search at www.schousingsearch.com or contact your local United Way.
