SC Housing provides current Housing Choice Voucher program participants the opportunity to participate in a home ownership program that will help them advance from rental housing to owning their own home. If a family meets the criteria stated below, the rental voucher can be changed to a home ownership voucher.
Note: Eligibility to participate in the HCV Home Ownership Program does not guarantee the applicant will qualify to buy a home. The head of household must independently obtain a mortgage prequalification letter from an approved SC Housing lender. The prequalification letter will include the price of the home that can be purchased, and provides the applicant the opportunity to work with a real estate agent/broker to start the home buying process.
Contact your Housing Choice Voucher administrator at your local Public Housing Agency to learn more.
Public Housing Agencies approved to participate in the Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program with SC Housing: SC State Housing Finance and Development Authority, Columbia City Housing Authority, Greenville City Housing Authority, Myrtle Beach Housing Authority, North Charleston Housing Authority and Spartanburg Housing Authority. If you represent a housing agency interested in participating, please contact SC Housing at Homeownership@SCHousing.com.
