The Utah Association of REALTORS® Housing Opportunity Fund tracks donations by each local board of REALTORS®. Once enough money has accumulated in a local board’s account, local non-profits may apply for the funds. Local boards provide initial grant approval and the state UARHOF trustees provide final approval on grant requests. Please use the following process to apply for a grant:
Step 1: Check to see if you qualify
Before applying for a grant, please verify that your organization and grant project meet the following qualifications:
- Your organization is a non-profit with 501(c)3 tax exempt status. Organizations without 501(c)3 status may not apply for UARHOF grants. Individuals may not apply for UARHOF grants.
- The grant funds will be used for a charitable purpose that is related to housing.
Step 2: Submit basic grant information for pre-qualification
All grants are subject to local board approval and availability of funds. Complete the following form to tell us more about your organization and grant project. Please fill out all fields completely. Incomplete submissions will not be considered. After you submit this form, we will provide the information to the board of REALTORS® in your area for preliminary approval. We will contact you to let you know whether your grant has been approved to move to Step 3, which is the application process. Please note that pre-qualification may take several months.
Step 3: After preliminary approval, submit full application
We will contact you when we receive preliminary grant approval from your local board of REALTORS®. At that time, you are required to submit the full UARHOF grant application.
Please carefully review the list of items needed. We will not accept incomplete applications.
Step 4: Wait for final grant approval
The state-level UARHOF trustees approve complete grant applications in January, May and September. Once we have your full application, we will place it on the agenda for review at our next regularly scheduled meeting.
We will notify you following the meeting to let you know whether your grant was approved. Your local board will also contact you to schedule a check presentation.
Contact Allison Call, UARHOF program manager, at (801) 676-5200 if you have questions about the UARHOF grant application process.
