NAR REQUIRES MORE "skin in the game"
NAR recently reviewed OAR's finances and discovered that we are on the low side of funds held for issue campaigns.
We also discovered that coalition partner contributions do not count toward the required minimum contribution towards an issue campaign.
NAR requires that State and Local Associations contribute 10%-50% of total funds needed towards mobilizing an issue. For requests over $1 million, a minimum of 50% is required as an association contribution. Guess how much the average cost to put an issue on a state ballot for general vote? Yup, approximately $1 million. For requests over $1 million, a minimum 50% contribution is required for an NAR Issues Mon Grant. That's $500K from the State or Local Association. OUCH!
