Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville Association of REALTORS® has announced that it will use a $5,000 grant from the National Association of Realtors® to address fair and affordable housing matters in the greater Clarksville and Montgomery County region.
“Realtors® recognize the significance of the Fair Housing Act and reaffirm our commitment to upholding these laws and to offering fair, equitable service to every person in their search for homes and property,” said Lisa Boyd, President of the Clarksville Association of REALTORS®.
As part of NAR’s new Fair Housing Action Plan, abbreviated ‘ACT,’ which emphasizes Accountability, Culture Change, and Training to ensure America’s 1.4 million Realtors® are doing everything possible to protect housing rights in America, the Clarksville Association of REALTORS® is doing our part to solidify the role fair housing plays in our industry and in our communities.
