What is RPAC?

RPAC is the acronym for REALTORS® Political Action Committee. The REALTOR® Party is a powerful alliance of REALTORS® and REALTOR® Associations working to protect and promote homeownership and property investment. The purpose of RPAC is clear: voluntary contributions made by REALTORS® are used to help elect candidates who understand and support their interests. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of the importance of the political process. The REALTORS® Political Action Committee and other political fundraising are the keys to protecting and promoting the real estate industry.

Examples of RPAC include:

  • REALTOR® PARTY Community Outreach Programs (https://realtorparty.realtor/community-outreach). Grant applications for Housing Opportunity, Smart Growth, Placemaking, Rural Outreach and Fair Housing are available in easy-to-access online application forms (login required). All grants offer a level 1 (up to $1,500) and level 2 (up to $5,000). Associations must commit 10% of the amount approved, and may receive one grant per level each year.
  • Consumer Advocacy Grant
  • Homeownership Issue Education and Consumer Action Hub: the new integrated site, where consumers can find information on issues that impact their property rights and communities. Consumers also can take direct action by signing a petition or sending a letter to lawmakers. https://homeownershipmatters.realtor/
