About the Issues Advocacy Fund

The Issues Advocacy Fund is used to assist Local Associations in conducting grassroots campaigns to support REALTOR® goals. Local Associations can request financial assistance to support or oppose ballot measures and local ordinances, or for other types of issue campaigns to influence public policy.


The mission of the Issues Advocacy Fund is to promote and mobilize public support for the REALTOR® positions on public policy issues by:

  1. educating the public about the impact and consequences of real estate-related legislation or regulation, and by
  2. conducting public advocacy campaigns.
