The city of Camden could become part of a new program to fund the removal and redevelopment of blighted residential properties. Kyle Kelly, director of economic and community sustainability for the Santee-Lynches Regional Council of Governments (COG), spoke to Camden City Council about the Neighborhood Initiative Program (NIP) during its Nov. 25 meeting. Kelly said the city could receive a maximum of $35,000 per identified property out of a $35 million allocation to South Carolina from the U.S. Department of the Treasury to create the program.
