Commercial Innovation Grants: Accepting Applications Now

Applications are now open for the Commercial Innovation Grants program held by the Commercial and Global Services division of the National Association of REALTORS®. The program provides financial resources for new commercial programming at REALTOR® associations that have an active commercial structure.

To obtain approval, proposals must demonstrate an impact on the association. Winning projects might take the form of new programs, new products, services or processes that improve an organization’s commercial real estate presence.

Check out the page at Realtor.com/commercial dedicated to the program to find the grant application form as well as a nice listing and summaries of proposals that have been green-lit, ranging from new software applications to learning-day sessions to new study methods examining cases of listing proposals — and everything in between.  You’ve got time to think it through: completed forms must be submitted by December 31st, 2016.

Ready, set, innovate!
