Stage 2 Disaster Relief Efforts Launched

The NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of Stage 2 disaster relief efforts.  Stage 2 includes the release of grants for one month’s rent or mortgage assistance for those who have been impacted by the Hurricane Florence storm system.  You can find our press release here.

Grants are available for up to $1,500 and do not need to be repaid.  You can access the application here.

This assistance is available through the generosity of the REALTOR® Relief Foundation, a natural disaster fund managed by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).  NAR has committed up to $500,000 to this effort.

The NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation has also committed $50,000 to this effort.  One hundred percent of all proceeds from this fund will benefit disaster victims.

In addition, REALTORS® in North Carolina and across the country have come to the aid of those in need by donating generously to the Housing Foundation.  You can donate online or mail a check earmarked for disaster relief to:

NCRHF, 4511 Weybridge Lane, Greensboro, NC  27407.

Stage 1 Efforts

REALTORS® have individually responded with overwhelming generosity to NC REALTORS® Stage 1 (immediate need) disaster response efforts.  NC REALTORS® and Housing Foundation volunteers donated goods, loaded them on trucks and delivered to affected areas in our state.  Supply truck deliveries included the following locations:  Jacksonville, Wilmington, Lumberton, Fayetteville, Calabash, New Bern, and Morehead City.
