Program Overview & Guidance

NAR's Smart Growth Action Grants support a wide range of activities that support REALTOR® engagement in land-use or transportation-related issues with the primary goals of affecting public policies that support a more sustainable development paradigm as detailed in the 10 Smart Growth Principles while raising the profile of REALTORS® as community leaders and enhancing REALTOR® relationships with elected officials.

Funding Levels
