The South Eastern Utah Association of Realtors recently presented a $500 grant to Community Rebuilds of Moab. The grant, which was awarded through the organization’s Housing Opportunity Fund (UARHOF) is intended to help “support the development of affordable housing opportunities for low-income individuals and families,” according to a news release from the group.

“The South Eastern Utah Association of Realtors has had a long-standing relationship with Community Rebuilds,” says Randy Day, chapter president. “They are able to accomplish great things in the community, but that impact doesn’t compare to the difference they make for the individual families who receive help.”

Local nonprofit organizations can apply for available grants, which are reviewed first by the local board of realtors® and then by the state UARHOF trustees.

The South Eastern Utah Association of Realtors is the “local voice” of real estate in the Moab area, and is committed to its motto of “Bringing People Home.”
