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.
The 2022 grant applications closed on April 29, 2022.
