Housing

SC Appleseed advocates at the local and state levels for legislation and policies that will ensure safe, adequate and affordable housing for South Carolinians, while monitoring the enforcement of federal and state laws that can protect an individual’s ability to maintain stable housing.

SC Appleseed partnered with the Affordable Housing Coalition of South Carolina and other housing advocates to help create the William C. Mescher Local Housing Trust Fund Enabling Act of 2007, which grants local governments the authority to establish trust funds to address their communities’ housing needs. SC Appleseed has also served as a member of the South Carolina Affordable Housing Study Committee, recommending legislative reforms and strategies to address our state’s housing shortage. We also have been the protector of the state’s landlord-tenant law, which is recurrently assailed by opponents of tenant protections.
