Charleston County to Suspend New Applications for Emergency Rental Assistance Program
Charleston County’s Community Development Department will suspend the acceptance of Emergency Rental Assistance Program applications on October 8th, 2021. The department will process applications submitted through October 7th, 2021 and follow-up with those applicants who still need to submit information.
The program currently has over 10,900 applications in the system. Staff needs to ensure there is enough funding available for pending applications before accepting additional ones. If there is still funding available after processing applications, Community Development will re-open the application.
Since the start of the Emergency Rental Assistance Program on April 12, 2021, Charleston County has provided $11.6 million in rental and utility aid to over 1,600 households and helped over 450 landlords.
