Brief: Board of Realtors accepting grant applications


The Park City Board of Realtors has funds available for Summit or Wasatch County non profit organizations that provide affordable housing to Utah citizens. Grant applications will be accepted through Sept. 18.

According to Brett Peretti, local chair of the Utah Association of Realtor Housing Opportunity Fund (UARHOF), the Park City Board of Realtor has distributed nearly $40,000 to local non-profit housing projects since the inception of UARHOF in 1999.

UARHOF, a non-profit foundation, was established to assist other non-profit organizations who deal with affordable housing needs by offering grants. UARHOF funds are accumulated from interest earned on real-estate trust accounts and through contributions. The majority of the monies collected are returned to the community from which they were donated, with a portion set aside in a statewide fund for special statewide projects and disaster relief.

To be eligible for funds, organizations must be based in Utah, have a housing-related mission and be a non-profit agency with a 501(c)3 status.
