Greater Louisville Association of REALTORS® Receives National Grant to Support Sustainability and Resiliency

Louisville, KY
The Greater Louisville Association of Realtors® was awarded a Sustainability Grant from the National Association of Realtors® to support activities that promote sustainability and resiliency.

The grant is being utilized to host a Sustainability Summit for Realtors® that will feature local experts on April 19, 2023 from 11:00am to 2:00pm.  Laura Grabowski, Director of the Office of Community Development from Louisville Metro Government, will be sharing information on abandoned homes initiatives. Sumedha Rao, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability will speak on the city’s sustainability efforts and programs for businesses and homeowners. Steve Ricketts of Generation Solar and the Chair of the Kentucky Solar Energy Society will share how the Solar Over Louisville program works as a community-based bulk purchasing program giving a discounted, wholesale rate to the entire Louisville community.

“Realtors® are community leaders who are invested in prioritizing viability, adaptability, resiliency and resource efficiency,” said Lynda Fernandez, CEO of the Greater Louisville Association of REALTORS®. “This grant will help raise awareness about sustainability’s value proposition for real estate. Buyers, sellers, and communities benefit from sustainable offerings in the built environment — including positive health, energy efficiency, environmental and wellness impacts.”

NAR offered the Sustainability Grant to state and local associations nationwide, to help implement a sustainability program, event, plan or update for their members, and encourage ongoing awareness about the high value of sustainability in real estate. This year, the pilot year for the Sustainability Grant, a total of 21 associations were selected by the NAR member-led team of evaluators to receive up to $5,000 for their sustainability-focused projects. This was a competitive grant with limited total funding and NAR was pleased to have received many great applications and interest from associations across all regions of the U.S. for this new opportunity.
