The CREB® REALTOR® Community Foundation has a robust strategy that responds to community need. We maximize the potential of every contribution as we work to help tackle complex needs around housing and shelter for people that need it most.
The Foundation is making this happen with three grant programs designed to create new housing, keep people housed and improve housing quality.
Legacy Grants – create new housing

A Legacy Grant is the largest and most substantial investment from CREB® REALTOR® Community Foundation. Funding from this giving stream is designed to make a substantial impact and create new housing and shelter options in the community.
One grant between $100,000 and $1 million will be awarded as either a one-time contribution, or through a multi-year funding partnership.
