New Grant Opportunity
The Nareit Foundation is accepting proposals from nonprofit organizations to support programs that enhance the diversity of the real-estate-investment industry. The aim is to address systemic challenges faced by workers from underrepresented backgrounds, specifically those who are Black, Latino or Hispanic, women, first-generation college students, students from historically Black colleges and universities, and high-school students. Grants between $25,000 and $100,000 each will be awarded to programs that focus on workforce and professional development for careers in real estate, or offer mentoring, consulting, or access to investment capital for minority- or women-owned businesses. Applications are due March 9.
