Complementing our neighborhood improvement efforts are our housing initiatives. The City of Aiken is working hard to stabilize and expand the City’s affordable housing stock. We have many ways to help you buy a home or upgrade your existing home.

- Credit Issues
If you are thinking about buying a home, or about to make any purchase involving credit, you will want to pull your credit report to make certain everything is in order. The City of Aiken works very closely with an area bank, Security Federal, to help establish or repair credit. Call us at (803) 642-7722 or (803) 642-7723 to find out more about our credit repair programs.

- Emergency Repair
Click here to view the Emergency Repair Brochure. Funds for this program are a grant from the City to Owner. The City grants these funds for emergency repairs, made available through the Community Development Block Grant Program to income eligible homeowners, for required emergency home repairs. This program is not intended for major renovations; it is for documented emergency repairs only. For more information, please contact your City of Aiken Community and Development Planner or call (803) 642-7606.
