The Egyptian Board of REALTORS®, Greater Gateway Association of REALTORS®, and REALTOR® Association of Southwestern Illinois along with the Illinois REALTORS® Relief Foundation (IRRF) will announce $25,000 in assistance for families in Bond, Macoupin, Madison, Monroe, St. Clair, and Washington counties which were affected by record rain fall.
IRRF is the disaster assistance foundation established by Illinois REALTORS®. It works with local associations to make sure money is allocated to those living in hard-hit communities.
“REALTORS® work in communities throughout the Metro East and Southern Illinois, and when we see a need, we want to make sure we do what we can to assist,” said Ron Deedrick, Illinois REALTORS® Government Affairs Director. “Our mission is to help people thrive in communities they love, and standing by our neighbors in good times and bad is what we do.”
The money will be allocated to go straight to families and homeowners directly impacted by the flood. Association representatives will be announcing details on how those impacted families can get the assistance.
The assistance is based on completion of an application. The application and eligibility requirements for aid can be obtained at www.IllinoisRealtors.org/irrf.
IRRF and Illinois REALTORS® have donated nearly $1 million in aid to people affected by natural and manmade disasters since 1997.
The Egyptian Board of REALTORS®, Greater Gateway Association of REALTORS®, and REALTOR® Association of Southwestern Illinois represent thousands of real estate professionals in six counties affected. Illinois REALTORS®, the state umbrella organization, represents more than 50,000 members engaged in all aspects of the real estate business.
