Real Estate Foundation Streamlines Funding Process
Each year, the Real Estate Foundation of BC (REFBC) earmarks a percentage of its budget to fund research, education, and policy/law reform projects led by real estate industry organizations. These projects build capacity in the industry and empower real estate professionals with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to serve the public.
For its 2017 granting season, the REFBC has introduced a tailored application process for real estate industry grant applications by organized real estate bodies. The deadline for proposal to the Real Estate Industry Grants program is December 15, 2017. Find out more about the application process and apply online at refbc.com/grants.
REFBC supports work that:
- Builds real estate and land use knowledge that contributes to resilient, healthy communities and natural environments.
- Encourages collaboration between real estate industry organizations and other partners, and builds support for sustainable land use amongst real estate professionals, the public and policy makers.
- Supports real estate professionals in their role as advisors on real estate, land use and built environment trends, laws and standards that help foster a high quality of life and/or serve the public interest in other ways.
