The South Carolina Department of Commerce, in conjunction with its partners, has prepared the 2022 Annual Action Plan as part of the State Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development.

The consolidated Annual Action Plan contains a summary of each program’s individual annual plan, with more detailed documents available from the administering agency.
The SC Department of Commerce administers CDBG; the State Housing Finance & Development Authority administers HOME program, the NHTF program and the newly funded HOME American Rescue Plan (ARP); the SC Office of Economic Opportunity administers ESG; and the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control administers HOPWA.
