Service Project Grants

Make an impact on housing with the help of an NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation Matching Grant.

Since 2004, NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation has awarded Matching Grants to qualifying housing nonprofit that partner with a local REALTOR® Association in their community. Want to help a nonprofit in your area? Here’s how the program works:

First, a local association invests in a community-based nonprofit. Then, the local association recommends this same nonprofit for a Matching Grant from the NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation. Next, the Foundation deepens the commitment of REALTOR® involvement by matching the local donation.

To date, the Foundation has awarded more than $450,000 in matching dollars to deepen the commitment of local REALTOR® associations in their communities. Matching grants have enabled repairs for elderly homeowners, made homes handicapped-accessible for the disabled, and facilitated affordable housing opportunities for those families trying to get back on their feet.

Does your local association, nonprofit organization or other community group have plans to improve housing?

The spring application cycle has closed. Check back in August to submit an application during the fall cycle.
