In an effort to address the rear entrance of buildings exposed by the new courthouse location, the county initiated a creative collaborative effort with the City of Darlington to apply for grant funds. The county is providing the 10% match required for applications at an amount of $75,000. Shown in red is the outline of the area for the project list if the grant is awarded.
The South Carolina Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program provides grants to eligible local governments (towns, cities and counties) that do not directly receive CDBG funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CDBG grants can fund a wide variety of projects from revitalizing neighborhoods to improving community infrastructure, providing public facilities and creating or retaining jobs.
The state program is administered by the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Division of Grants Administration
