The REALTOR® Community Foundation has a robust strategy that responds to community need. We maximize the potential of every contribution and stay true to what we know best – housing and shelter.
We have three grant streams to create new housing, keep people housed and improve housing quality.
Legacy Grants – Create new housing
CREB® Legacy Grants are our signature funding stream, with the goal of making substantial, progressive changes for communities in the area of housing and shelter.
To secure a legacy grant, organizations must demonstrate exceptionally strong alignment with our core community investment priorities, present a clear case for support that includes research and data driven solutions, along with projected outcomes measures for the project.
Community Grants – Keep people housed
CREB® Community Grants support projects that improve community housing to keep people housed. These grants support projects that assist vulnerable populations at risk of losing shelter.
To secure a community grant, the solution strategy must include a strong connection to housing and/or shelter, and the project must clearly focus on the capital “bricks and mortar” aspect.
Transformation Grants – Improve housing quality
CREB®’s Transformation Grants respond to community infrastructure needs by helping transform existing spaces. These grants support non-profit organizations that specialize in housing and shelter and who are looking to expand existing structures or make renovations/repairs to improve housing quality.
Grant applications will open in Spring 2020.
