The State of South Carolina passed the Omnibus Coastal Property Reform Act of 2007 to address several issues faced by insuring Coastal properties. In this Act, the South Carolina Department of Insurance enacted the “Safe Home Program”.
This program is specifically designed to help primary homeowners in the coastal regions to upgrade certain parts of their home to make it more wind resistant through grants funded by the state. Some of these upgrades include: roof strapping, roof bracing, secondary water resistance, opening protection and much more. The state will grant you half of the project cost up to $5,000.
