Grant Applications

NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation Matching Grant

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

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

There are two application cycles per year.

  • Spring application deadline: April 30
  • Fall application deadline: September 30

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

Innovative Grant

The Innovative Grant Program is available on an annual basis to local associations across North Carolina. NC REALTORS® looks for new programs, events or plans that change the way business is typically thought about, made or conducted. This opportunity empowers local associations to develop and nurture great ideas into actionable programs, which may otherwise be cost-prohibitive. It also elevates the REALTOR® brand through innovation.

A total of $15,000 will be available for the Innovative Grant Program every fiscal year (up to $5,000 per association per cycle). Applications will be received and reviewed once per year.

Application deadline: August 15, 2024


NC REALTORS® Give Back Grant

In support of local REALTOR® association service projects for NC REALTORS® Gives Back, the NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation is promoting a fundraiser and grant program.

The money raised from online donations will be collected by the Housing Foundation and then used to assist local association Gives Back projects through matching grants.

Application deadline: August 31


Local Association Grant Program

In 2024, President Tony Harrington and NC REALTORS® want to support the work of local associations with a small grant. Each local association is eligible for a one-time reimbursement of up to $500 to enhance a program or event that advances your strategic plan and highlights the value of membership in your association.

Application deadline: December 31, 2024
