Grants now available to victims of the Okanogan and Chelan Complex Fires

Thanks to $150,000 in funding from the REALTORS Relief Foundation and the Washington REALTORS, housing-related grant money is now available to victims of the terrible fires that have ravaged the North Central Washington area. If you personally want to help, see below.

In the aftermath of last year’s Carlton Complex Fires, the North Central Washington Association of REALTORS® (NCWAR) raised just over $29,000 to assist with those fire relief efforts and an additional $13,000 for the Sleepy Hollow Fire, but more assistance was needed so NCWAR turned to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation.  NCWAR received a grant from the RRF for the 2014 Carlton Complex fires in the amount of $75,000 with matching funds of $75,000 from Washington REALTORS®.  To date, NCWAR, with the assistance of the RRF, has disbursed $44,760 to 64 grant recipients.  NCWAR will now be reallocating the remaining $105,240 to provide assistance to the victims of the current fires.
