Applications for the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB) Realtor Community Foundation’s Community and Transformation grants, which support local housing and shelter initiatives, are open until June 28.


$150,000 in Community and Transformation grants to support community housing


Community grants fund major repairs or renovations to existing community housing or shelter supply. This year, $105,000 in total Community grants will be awarded.

Transformation grants fund minor renovations to existing infrastructure that will improve housing quality. This year, $45,000 in total Transformation grants will be awarded.

“Everyone deserves the safety and security of a home,” says Catherine Chow, chair of CREB Realtor Community Foundation. “Through our Community and Transformation grants, realtors are committed to supporting Calgarians by keeping them housed and improving housing quality through renovation and repair.

All eligible organizations are strongly encouraged to apply for these grants for extra support on their projects. We look forward to learning more about all the amazing, hard work being done in the community.”


$350,000 in Legacy grant funding to RMHC this year


The Foundation will also award $350,000 in Legacy grant funding to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) this year, making it the third installment of a three-year $1 million funding agreement to support an expansion project that will more than double the number of families RMHC can support.

“The positive impact we’re making year after year is just amazing,” says Jason Yule, CREB’s director of communications and governance.

“CREB realtors are deeply invested in making a difference in the area of housing and shelter, which is why this year we’re offering $500,000 in grant funding to support local non-profit organizations to create new housing options and sustain the quality of existing housing for those who need it most.”
