Last month, Richland County began accepting applications for the Returning Home program, which will use funds from the CDBGR-DR (Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery) to assist residents who lost their homes in the 2015 Floods. The county is accepting applications through June 15 (or until they receive 600 applications). To assist residents in completing the application, four community meetings are scheduled in June. Flood recovery staff will be available at the meetings to guide residents through the registration process, provide information about housing rehabilitation and mobile home replacement, and help residents complete their registration forms.
