The Housing Opportunity Committee met at the Washington Hilton this morning.
Terry Sullivan, Chair of the Smart Growth Advisory Board spoke to us about the smart growth grant opportunities available for the local associations to utilize.
Next up was Melanie McLane. She is an REBAC Hall of Fame instructor and gave us a an update on the SRES designation.
After hearing about the designations and the benefits of increased knowledge, we broke into small groups. We were given local association scenarios and worked together to create a plan. There were lots of great ideas shared about creative ways to use the available grant money. If you are interested in learning more about the grants go to www.realtoractioncenter.com.
We were joined by the chair of the Federal Finance Housing Policy and he shared a statement on Boomerang Buyers. It was approved and the statement of support will move on to the executive committee.
