Local REALTORS Win Grant

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has awarded a grant of $3,000 to the MetroTex Association of Realtors. The MetroTex Association covers the REALTORS in most of North Texas, including Tarrant and Dallas counties. MetroTex was the only Texas association to be successful in gaining a grant through NAR's Housing Opportunity Program.

The grant will be used to hold a workshop for REALTORS, public officials, and affordable housing organizations to define and describe the negative attitudes held by the public about affordable housing. Workshop participants will also create strategies to change those attitudes.

"Receiving this grant will be very beneficial for MetroTex to address a big issue in communities across North Texas," said 2011 MetroTex President Patricia Szot. "In today's market any negative perception about affordable housing needs to be eliminated. We have to move forward to improve all all areas of our housing market."

The Texas Veterans Land Board, Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, and USDA Rural Development agency offer assistance to various groups.
