Applying for SC CARES Act Funds

The state of South Carolina has retained Guidehouse, Inc. to build and operationalize the SC CARES Grant Management Program which is a statewide recovery program for the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF). The SC CARES Grant Management Program serves as the mechanism by which governmental entities and hospitals may submit requests for reimbursements for eligible COVID-19-related expenses.

The deadline for qualifying entities in South Carolina to apply for the reimbursement of COVID-19 expenses through CARES Act funds has been extended to Friday, Aug. 21, 2020.

Required SC CARES Act Funds Subrecipient Document: Each organization that submits a reimbursement request is required to sign a Subrecipient Agreement which outlines the roles and certifications required of each subrecipient. The Subrecipient Agreement must be signed before an organization can submit a reimbursement request. This agreement must be signed by the organization’s Chief Executive Officer and Chair of the organization’s Governing Board or Authority, where appropriate. For example, if you are a state agency that is governed by a Board, then your agreement would need to be signed by the Agency Head and Board Chair. If you are a local government entity, then your agreement would need to be signed by your County Administrator/City Manager and Council Chair.

To provide the name and contact information for the person(s) that will sign the agreement for your organization, call the SC CARES Call Center (803-670-5170).  The identified individual(s) will receive instructions on how to access and sign the agreement electronically.
