The REALTORS® Relief Foundation is now accepting applications from Tennesseans who experienced damage from the tornado and straight-line winds that whipped through Tennessee on March 31 – April 1, 2023. This weather event devastated communities across 10 counties throughout West and Middle Tennessee. Funds will be made available to the public to assist with disaster victims’ housing payments as relief and recovery efforts continue. The impacted counties include Tipton, Hardman, McNairy, Hardin, Rutherford, Cannon, Wayne, Lewis, Macon, and Haywood.
Please email your completed application and the required attachments specified in the application to .
Applicants do NOT need to be REALTOR® members—the RRF assistance is available to all impacted victims. Relief assistance is limited to a maximum of $1,000 per household. The deadline for application submission is June 30, 2023. Please note this assistance is for housing relief only; other expenses including second mortgages (home equity lines or loans), clothing, appliances, equipment, vehicle purchase, rental or repair, and or mileage are ineligible for reimbursement under this program.
Since 2001, RRF has disbursed more than $38 million in aid to more than 19,000 families in 42 states and territories. NAR collaborates with state and local REALTOR® associations to cover all administrative costs, ensuring 100% of all funds collected are distributed directly to disaster relief causes.
When a major disaster occurs, RRF mobilizes its outreach efforts and turns to NAR members and other constituents for support. You can learn more about RRF by visiting www.nar.realtor/rrf.
