Because of the astounding number of families and individuals from the very low-income population living in sub-standard housing, BJEOC has committed itself to helping decrease these numbers. the Housing Preservation Grant Program, funded under the USDA-Rural Development Administration, as well as South Carolina State Housing Finance & Development Authority both funding sources allows for necessary home repairs/improvements that will significantly preserve the structure.

HPG funds may be used to make improvements that contribute to the health, safety and well-being of the occupant, structural integrity or long-term preservation of the owner occupied single family dwelling.
