NAHB ‘Buy Now’ Grant Program Ends, With $3 Million Disbursed
NAHB’s “Buy Now” Advertising Assistance Program ended last month with $3 million disbursed to 168 associations around the country. Launched at the 2007 International Builders' Show in February, the program provided funds to support advertising campaigns of builders associations in areas hard-hit by the housing downturn.
The grant amounts ranged from $5,000 to $75,000, and went to associations in 42 states. For a list of the HBAs that received grants, click here. To view a map of the distribution, click here.
Four grants were awarded to associations in the top 10 major media markets, 89 to medium-sized HBAs and 75 to HBAs with less than 250 members — supporing more than $8.3 million in advertising.
