The National Association of REALTORS® is now accepting applications for its 2022 Good Neighbor Awards, a program that recognizes REALTORS®’ charitable and volunteer works that have made an impact in their communities or beyond.
Five winners in the program will receive a $10,000 grant toward their nonprofit organization. Winners also will be recognized with media exposure and at the 2022 REALTORS® Conference & Expo in Orlando, Fla., in November. Also, five honorable mentions will be recognized with a $2,500 grant.
“During a time when so many are in need, it is encouraging to see REALTORS® across the country continuing to give back through volunteerism,” says NAR President Leslie Rouda Smith. “With REALTOR® volunteering at nearly three times the rate of the general population, the Good Neighbor Awards shines a light on the amazing efforts that NAR members put forth to help their neighbors and better their communities.”
The Good Neighbor Awards program started in 2000 and has donated $1.4 million to REALTOR®-led nonprofits around the country. The program is supported by its primary sponsor, realtor.com®, as well as the Center for REALTOR® Development.
