Local Realtors offer grants to local non-profits

The Park City Board of Realtors has announced it has funds available for qualified Summit or Wasatch County nonprofit organizations that provide affordable housing to Utah citizens. Grant applications will be accepted through Jan. 11.

Brett Peretti, local chair of the Utah Association of Realtors Housing Opportunity Fund (UARHOF), said the Park City Board of Realtors has distributed $30,139 to local non-profit housing projects since the inception of UARHOF in 1999.

Realtors and UARHOF welcome the opportunity to improve communities by assisting with affordable housing needs. UARHOF, a nonprofit foundation, was established to assist other nonprofit organizations that deal with affordable housing needs by offering grants. UARHOF funds are accumulated from interest earned on real-estate trust accounts and from 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 nonprofit agency with a 501(c)3 status.

For more information or to obtain an application call Sharon Woodbury at the Board of Realtors, (435) 200-6900.
