Regional Project Grant

NC REALTOR®s Housing Foundation would like to partner with regions in North Carolina on high impact, high profile regional projects that help increase affordable housing and the overall quality of life in communities across the state.

What kinds of projects are we talking about?  It should be a project that brings multiple housing industry partners together to address a housing need in the community.  Some examples might include:

  • Making repairs to a home (or numerous homes) of an individual who is not able to do so because they are low-income, elderly, disabled or otherwise not capable.
  • Partnering with the city or a housing organization to purchase, rehab and sell foreclosed homes to low-income residents.
  • Partnering with businesses to create employer-assisted housing.
  • Improving homes by removing contaminants or by adding energy efficient features.
  • Repurposing vacant properties or those slated for demolition.

As funds allow, NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation would like to partner with two regions per year and match local funds for each project up to $5,000.  Participating REALTOR® associations would be responsible for raising local funds for the project and providing volunteer support.  Applications must be received by March 30, of current year and September 30 of current year.
