Ohio REALTORS® Housing Disaster Relief Fund
The Ohio REALTORS® Housing Disaster Relief Fund will be providing up to $1,000 non-repayable grants to qualified applicants.
Relief Fund Guidelines
Through a grant from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), along with donations from individual REALTORS®, Dayton REALTORS®, and other associations across the state, the Ohio REALTORS® Housing Disaster Relief Fund will be providing more than $325,000 in financial relief to qualified residents whose home or rental were damaged during the storms.
Qualified applicants will receive up to $1,000 in assistance for a home or rental residence that was damaged during the tornadoes.
Assistance is limited to housing relief only; other expenses including second mortgages, vehicle purchase, rental and/or mileage are ineligible for reimbursement under this program. NAR grant funds are restricted to residents of Greene, Mercer and Montgomery counties. However, Ohio REALTORS® assistance is not tied directly to the NAR grant and may be disbursed for expenses beyond direct mortgage/rental payments, such as insurance deductible, hotels, etc.
Those grants will be made on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the fund’s Trustees/Administrators and will be served on a first-come, first served basis. The deadline to submit an application is Friday, August 16.
