NAR Grants to Promote Diversity


The US National Association of Realtors (NAR) has announced it will be awarding $37,000 in grants to nine local and state NAR member associations.

The Diversity Initiative Grant Program awards up to $5000 to NAR member organisations to fund activities that promote members as “leaders in our country’s increasingly diverse communities and that extend the benefits of homeownership to more Americans”.
