Office of Executive Policy and Programs (OEPP)

Economic Opportunity

The Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) administers and distributes funds for local initiatives in collaboration with Community Action Agencies and Emergency Shelters in all 46 South Carolina counties. Our goals are the eradication of poverty, increasing levels of family self-sufficiency and promoting energy efficiency through programs such as the Community Services Block Grant, Low Income Home Assistance Program, Emergency Solutions Grant and Weatherization Assistance Program. These programs are vital in accomplishing anti-poverty goals, as they allow for optimal flexibility in meeting locally identified needs. The programs sustain a great range of life necessities, including health care, education, employment, and housing assistance.
