2022 Grant Cycle closed on August 1st

A record number of non-profits applied: 53!

The REALTOR® Fund Grant Cycle has been modified to a one-year annual grant of $45,000 awarded to one local non-profit organization serving the four-county Greater Albuquerque Metro Area – Bernalillo, Sandoval, Valencia, and Torrance.   

What Happens Next

The REALTOR® Fund Committee has begun to review the grant applications received and will select three applicants who will present to the GAAR Board of Directors at the October Meeting. The Board will then vote on one applicant to receive the grant for 2022. The selected applicant will be introduced at the GAAR/SWMLS Annual Meeting on Wednesday, December 7th.
