Central Savannah River Area RC CHIP Grant Administration

Many communities in the Central Savannah River region are facing the reality of an aging housing stock. Some communities have been particularly active in working to address this issue and are actively working to improve substandard housing. The CSRA Regional Commission has closely partnered with these communities at every step in the process of addressing this need, from community planning to grant writing to grant administration.

The Regional Commission's local government services department has been active in administering Community HOME Investment Program grant funds. Examples can be found in the communities of Sandersville, Waynesboro and Wrens, which have each improved numerous properties through this program. All of the communities identified substandard housing as an issue in their comprehensive plans and have maintained a focus on improving housing in plan updates. In recent years, each have completed multiple rehabilitation and reconstruction projects in partnership with the Regional Commission, making a tangible improvement in the lives of residents and the quality of neighborhoods.
