NAR Smart Growth grants are advocacy tools for local associations to engage their local members, stakeholders, and policymakers in reshaping their communities using smart growth principles.
I had the pleasure of co-teaching the “Smart Growth for the 21st Century” class with Nate Johnson, a REALTOR® from St. Louis, Mo. There were 40 registrants, the largest smart growth class at the REALTORS® Conference & Expo.
Chair Laurie Urbigkit led the Smart Growth Advisory Board meeting. As Vice-Chair I reported that 98 grants were awarded to local associations totaling around $280,000. Learn more about NAR’s Smart Growth programs at nar.realtor/smart-growth.
