COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO) – More families in South Carolina are facing evictions after the Supreme Court ruling to end the federal moratorium on evictions. Through the SC Stay Plus program, SC Housing and local organizations continue to help families find rental and utility assistance.
In addition to past due rents or utility bills, the program offers up to three months of potential rent to eligible applicants facing housing insecurity.
“While thousands of residents of our state have successfully requested help through the web or our call center, we want to make sure that every South Carolina that needs help has an opportunity to apply,” said Bonita Shropshire, Executive Director of SC Housing. “By partnering with these established community organizations, we have the opportunity to meet the residents of our state where they are and provide them with additional support and assistance to help them stay safe in their homes.”
South Carolina tenants who have been evicted or are threatened with displacement can apply by calling 803-336-3420 or emailing [email protected]
The program has already helped more than 6,400 families with nearly $ 30 million in rent and utility payments.
