This department assists low-income homeowners to remain in their homes by providing ramps and other necessary repairs that threaten the health and safety of these families.
RAMPS & MINOR REPAIRS - Many disabled homeowners find themselves in need of a ramp, rails, or minor home repairs, yet do not have the resources necessary to make the improvements due to being on a low, fixed income.
AIM coordinates with several area church groups, civic organizations, and clubs to build ramps or make minor repairs to qualified applicants. We match clients in need with the resources and labor needed to make these improvements, which will enable them to remain self-sufficient.
For more information or to determine if you're eligible, contact our Housing Director Michael Kinard by calling our main office at (864)226-2273.
EMERGENCY AND OWNER OCCUPIED REPAIRS - AIM's repair programs assist low-income homeowners by addressing safety hazards to their homes not covered by insurance that would cause further damage if not immediately repaired. AIM uses South Carolina Housing Trust Fund grants to complete these repairs. Funding assistance is provided to repair single-family, owner-occupied homes with eligible housing deficiencies.
Primary Eligibility Requirements:
Homes must be single-family and owner-occupied.
Owner must have proof of occupation for at least two years.
The total household income must not exceed the income
limits established by HUD (varies per county).
Mobile homes must be less than 20 years old - must own
both home AND land.
