NAR: $5,000 TO NEFAR HOUSING PROGRAMNAR awarded $39,500 to 13 local and state Realtor associations through its Housing Opportunity Fund grants program. The Northeast Florida Association of Realtors received $5,000 to enhance their Home Ownership Made Easy (HOME) program, which works with employers to create an employer-assisted housing benefit. "These grants help support NAR's mission of advocating solutions to today's critical housing needs, and help position Realtors as leaders in their communities by increasing access to affordable housing and homeownership," says NAR President Dick Gaylord. NAR established the Housing Opportunity Fund - formerly the State and Local Initiatives Fund - in 2006. Grants of up to $5,000 are awarded twice per year. Since the program's inception more than 77 grants totaling nearly a quarter of a million dollars have been awarded to support a wide range of housing opportunity activities.
