NAR grant awards $75,000 toward recovery effort; IAR, partners match amount

On Monday the National Association of REALTORS® announced that it was seeking assistance from the organization’s nearly one million members.

Now, NAR’s charitable foundation has awarded a $75,000 matching grant to help those affected by the November tornado outbreak. The Illinois Association of REALTORS® and other local boards have met the challenge, meaning that $150,000 will go toward disaster recovery.

In all, the total raised in less than a week by REALTORS® is more than $190,000.

IAR has established a partnership with a 501c3 charity to provide storm aid. You can donate to it here.

And the REALTORS® Relief Foundation continues to accept money which can be used for housing-related costs facing those who have been displaced or face other challenges.
