Published

on

Press Release from Charleston County

Charleston County Community Development will stop accepting emergency rental and utility assistance applications on Tuesday, June 21, 2022. In compliance with federal guidelines, the majority of the funds must be obligated by September 30, 2022. Closing the application process allows Charleston County Community Development to serve those who have already applied for assistance.

Applications for those who qualify for assistance will be accepted through June 21, 2022 and can be found at https://charlestoncounty.org/erap/index.php. Charleston County will also accept applications for court ordered eviction cases as long as funds are available. Renters can call 843-202-6974 to find out how to apply if they have an eviction order from Charleston County Magistrates Court.

Residents still needing assistance can access Charleston County Community Development’s Resource Directory at https://www.charlestoncounty.org/departments/community-development/files/ResourceDirectory.pdf, or call 843-202-6960 to have one mailed.

Since the start of this program in April 2021, Charleston County has assisted 3,617 tenants, 715 landlords and has obligated a little more than 28 million dollars in rent and utility assistance.
