The Houston, Missouri-based Ozark Trail Board of Realtors will use a $1,600 “micro-grant” from the National Association of Realtors to help develop the Licking Veterans Memorial Park, The Licking News reports.

State and local Realtor associations are eligible to receive up to two micro-grants per year of $500 to $2,000 under NAR’s “Placemaking Initiative.”

“Think of all the empty, vacant, unsafe, dysfunctional, uninviting, underused lots, squares, plazas, parks, bus stops, sidewalks, streets and waterfronts in your community,” NAR says in a guide to placemaking. “More than likely, they are avoided, bypassed and ignored. Placemaking can turn them around.” Source:
