The Housing Opportunity Fund, a National Association of REALTORS® grant program, has presented $50,000 to 15 local and state REALTOR® associations to promote and expand affordable housing opportunities in their communities.
Grants are awarded twice per year, in April and October. Since the program’s inception, nearly 140 grants totaling more than $450,000 have been awarded.
The grants support a wide range of housing opportunity activities, including housing symposia; homebuyer education or housing fairs; counseling and financial literacy efforts; down payment or closing cost financial assistance programs; public opinion surveys; and REALTOR® affordable housing education for groups including seniors, veterans, and minorities.
