The Governmental Affairs Department aims to assist local boards and associations in utilizing grants and resources provided through GAR and NAR. Making use of funds available through RPAC, RIAC, and NAR’s REALTOR® Party Programs enables REALTORS® to effectively increase their involvement in shaping the community, as well as the political process. If your local board wishes to increase community involvement, support a pro-REALTOR® candidate, or support or oppose a local issue or land use initiative, we encourage your board to contact our department for assistance in submitting the designated application.
To apply for GAR funds from either RPAC or RIAC, please complete the appropriate application(s) and include all required signatures. Forms may be submitted to GAR via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), fax (770-458-6992), or mail (Attention: Leslie Kopel). Ultimate approval for the disbursement of funds is determined by the committee members of RPAC and RIAC.
