Hot GREEN Grants

Exciting new grants that real estate professionals as well as those in the sustainable community
will want to note currently are available. Having to do with Sustainable Community Innovation these grants support creative cooperation of new community development strategies
with sustainable agriculture practices.

The tap root of quality of life throughout the global community is vigorous agriculture…strong farms, farming enterprises, interactive communities.  Innovation and dialogue can help find connections between all of these
that will lead collaborative problem solving. ECO-friendly real estate p[professionals, whose focus is the "green" market niche   are in a position to act as a liaison.

We could enhance sustainable community development while serving our clients.
