Nebraska Realtor's Association offers grant to help flood victims with mortgage and rent

LINCOLN, Neb. - A month after the state's historic flooding, many people still aren't back in their homes or apartments, but Nebraska realtors are looking to help.

The Nebraska chapter of the Realtor's Association received a $500,000 grant to distribute across the state to families affected by the flooding.

Homeowners and renters can get up to $1,000 to help with mortgages or rent by going online and filling out the application.

"As realtors, we do more than just sell real estate," said Megan Ourada. "We want to help them rehabilitate themselves after this tragic flooding. We want to make sure they're staying in their homes and not having to worry about at least making one mortgage payment."

So far, the association has helped out 88 families and given away more than $75,000, but Ourada says there's still plenty left.

"We've been told that it's a really easy application and we have all this money we just want to use to help," Ourada said.

The deadline for the application is June 15, but Ourada says it's best to apply sooner rather than later because funding is limited.
