  • <b><i>Realtors give back... <br></b></i>
The Grand San Juan Association of Realtors (GSJAOR) recently presented the group’s fourth grant to Community Rebuilds, a Moab-based nonprofit organization. The $1,500 grant is made possible through the Utah Association of Realtors Housing Opportunity Fund (UARHOF). The fund is specific to assisting nonprofit groups that help with affordable homeownership and repairs to primary residences throughout Utah. Community Rebuilds works to create affordable housing for Moab’s workforce, typically through replacing dilapidated homes such as pre-1976 trailers, with energy efficient straw bale homes. Community Rebuilds has just completed their eighth home and is supported by a student labor crew, which lowers the cost of construction and provides educational opportunities in sustainable building. Pictured: GSJAOR Trustee for UARHOF, Rachel Moody, presents a $1,500 check to Community Rebuilds Director Emily Niehaus, who is joined (from left) by the recipient of the nonprofit’s eighth home, Steven Langello, the Community Rebuilds contractor, Eric Plourde, natural builder Doug Nichols and construction supervisor Daniel McCann.
