Grant Funds for Flood Relief Assistance for Realtors Expires Soon
by M.C. Millman
The Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS® (HGAR) announced $500,000 of grant funding in August, which is still available through October 15 on a first come, first served basis.
The funding was approved by the National Association of REALTORS®’ Realtors Relief Foundation (RRF) to help REALTOR® members and residents throughout the Hudson Valley, including Rockland County, who were adversely affected by the flash flooding that took place on Sunday and Monday, July 9 and 10.
Rockland REALTOR® members and residents affected by the flooding are eligible for up to $2,000 towards mortgage, rent, or hotel expenses incurred due to displacement.
“REALTORS® don’t just live and work in our communities–we give back to them. As a REALTOR®, I am proud of what our REALTOR® Relief Foundation has done over the last 21 years to help restore and rebuild communities across the United States that have been devastated by disasters,” said Tony D’Anzica, HGAR president, according to RisMedia. “The Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS® has been a long-time contributor to the Foundation, and we are grateful to have the Foundation’s support now that our own communities are in need. We want the members of the communities we serve to know that, in more ways than they might realize, our REALTOR® family works every day to help them.”
Rockland REALTOR® members and residents who suffered flood damage may apply for either monthly mortgage expenses for the primary residence affected; rental costs due to displacement from the primary residence; or hotel reimbursement due to displacement from the primary residence.
