REALTORS®, Mayors Designate Cincinnati an Ambassador City for 2005
February 17, 2005- The National Association of Realtors® and The United States Conference of Mayors announced today that they are designating the City of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors® a 2005 Ambassador City under the organizations' Ambassadors For Cities Program. The purpose of the designation is to highlight nationally how the city and its board of Realtors have worked together to promote affordable housing through public-private partnerships.
The City of Cincinnati received the designation because of its own innovative Ambassadors program, which the city and the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors® began in 1997. Through this program, approximately 50 Realtors® are selected to promote housing opportunities throughout the city's neighborhoods. Since 2002 the city and the local board have held an innovative road rally in the fall to promote homeownership opportunities in the city's neighborhoods and to raise funds for a local down payment assistance program that helps first-time home buyers purchase a home. In 2004 the effort raised over $50,000.
Please join the City of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors® on October 6, 2005 for their Sold on Cincinnati Road Rally. All proceeds go to "Cincinnati Real Estate Ambassador Down Payment Program", providing $1,000 forgivable grants to homebuyers in the City of Cincinnati. Come have a great time, learn more about the City and help increase homeownership!
