Issues Mobilization


The North Carolina Association of REALTORS® Issues Mobilization Fund was established in 1991 to protect private property rights and housing affordability in North Carolina. The Fund is organized and operated for the purpose of collecting and disbursing monies to support or oppose state and local issues that impact real property and real property owners in North Carolina such as school bond referenda, building moratoria, land transfer tax referenda and local zoning ordinances and many others. It does not support any activities related directly or indirectly to candidate elections.

The Fund also provides the state association and all local associations with a resource to engage on issues important to the real estate industry. It is closely overseen by the NCAR Issues Mobilization Committee. This committee is comprised of a broad-based group of REALTORS® from across the state who vote on requests that come before them.
