The South Carolina Disaster Recovery Office (SCDRO) oversees grant programs that focus on rebuilding or repairing homes damaged by severe weather events, such as the severe storm event in October 2015 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016. With the support and guidance of the South Carolina Department of Commerce, SCDRO manages federal funds available to assist in disaster recovery.

SCDRO has amended the action plans for both the 2015 severe storm and 2016 Hurricane Matthew programs. The changes reflected are not of a substantial nature. The updated plans have an effective date of January 1, 2018.
