THE AVERAGE FAIR MARKET RENT FOR A 2 BEDROOM UNIT IN S.C. IS $625.  THE AVERAGE PER CAPITA INCOME FOR SC IS $23,854.  USING HUD'S GUIDELINES OF 30% OF INCOME FOR RENT + UTILITIES, A FAMILY OF 4 COULD ONLY AFFORD TO PAY $596.  WHO PAYS THE DIFFERENCE? WHERE CAN A S.C. CITIZEN LIVE IN DECENT SURROUNDINGS FOR $596 RENT AND UTILITIES? 

 

HOUSING AUTHORITIES MAKE THIS POSSIBLE.
