SC Uplift Announces Home Modification Program for Seniors

Daniel Prince

Group needs contractors to do the work, homeowners to sign up for the program

The group SC UpLift Community Outreach, with help from a $1 million grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, presents the Older Adults’ Home Modification Program. The program, which was first announced last August, is continuing to offer assessments and grant assistance for low-income senior citizens for low-cost home modifications to allow them to safely stay in their homes. The grants are available for elderly residents in Chester, Union, and Fairfield counties.

Examples of the low-cost modifications include lever-handle doorknobs, lever-handle faucets, grab bars, anti-slip strips for tubs and showers, railings, and more. The program is for homeowners only, and they must be at least 62 years old. Income restrictions also apply.

If you are a contractor interested in getting involved with this program, doing some interior and exterior house modifications and repairs, plumbing, electrical, and flooring repairs, and HUD Section 3 Compliance, you can find out more by calling 803-691-4742, emailing, or going online to If you are a citizen interested in taking part in the program, click on the HUD Home Repair Program link at There is a portal there for Union County residents to apply for review.
