The One SC Fund, established in the wake of last October’s floods, announced Monday $760,000 in recovery grants for 18 state nonprofit organizations. The Phase II grants will also provide volunteer labor and an additional $4.2 million in financial support for projects such as mold remediation and complete home rebuilds.
Nonprofits can apply for Phase III of the grants until 6 p.m., Friday.
Gov. Nikki Haley — in conjunction with the Central Carolina Community Foundation and state entertainment, business, and public service members — formed the One SC Fund in November after flooding caused an estimated $12 billion in statewide damage.
“We have neighbors and families who are still in need as we continue to rebuild a stronger South Carolina, and we are grateful for the continued generosity and kindness of so many across the state and country,” Haley said in a release announcing the grants.
The recipients were selected by a committee made up of four community foundation representatives from the 24 S.C. counties designated as emergency counties by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as well as business and civic leaders.
The following nonprofit organizations received Phase II grants:
