Typography

The town of Bluffton is seeking applicants for its Neighborhood Assistance Program, which offers repairs to homes and properties of low- to moderate-income residents. This program, which is operated through the town of Bluffton’s Affordable Housing Committee, offers assistance with repairs for projects such as leaking roofs, unstable or unsafe floors, failing septic tanks, inaccessible private roads, removing broken or unwanted items from a resident’s property, removing unsafe structures from a resident’s property, ensuring local emergency services have an official address to a resident’s property and assisting in obtaining proper paperwork for heirs’ property.

To qualify for assistance, applicants must have an income that does not exceed 60 percent of the median income for Beaufort County. For example, a gross income of less than $40,260 for a family of four would qualify for this program. Applicants are required to bring in three paycheck stubs for income qualification.
