Along with the administration of funds to partner organizations our Department offers two programs designed to enhance owner-occupied houses and to create homeownership opportunities in designated areas in the City of Charleston. The housing programs administered by the City of Charleston include the Homeowner Rehabilitation Program and the Homeownership Initiative
Private Sector Housing Developments
To encourage the private sector to produce affordable housing, the City of Charleston passed a Mixed-Use Workforce Housing Ordinance and enacted a housing percentage requirement in Planned Unit Developments (PUD). Developers have taken advantage of these opportunities adding much needed rental and homeownership housing to the City's housing stock.
