The South Carolina General Assembly appropriated American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to the South Carolina Office of Resilience (SCOR) for projects that will lessen the impact of flooding. Through SCOR’s Stormwater Infrastructure Program, $55 million is available to counties, cities, and towns to carry out stormwater infrastructure projects.
Counties, cities, towns, and tribal governments in all 46 counties of South Carolina are eligible to apply. Projects can be state-run or run by the subrecipient.
Both traditional "grey" infrastructure and nature-based or "green" infrastructure projects are eligible for funding.
|Grey Infrastructure||Green Infrastructure|
|New storm sewer pipes||Rain Gardens|
|Upsize/replace existing storm sewer pipes||Stormwater Planter Boxes|
|Ditches||Stormwater Tree Trenches|
|Catch Basins||Stormwater Wetlands|
|Other traditional conveyance solutions||Pervious Surfaces|
|Other innovative nature-based solutions|
Certain projects may also be eligible for funding via other ARPA-funded programs. Learn more about the SC Rural Infrastructure Authority SCIIP program here.
Outreach will continue through August 2022. SCOR will accept applications during September and October 2022, and will award projects in December.
