MT. STERLING, Ky. — The Mt. Sterling–Montgomery County Industrial Authority recently received a $5,000 economic development grant from the Kentucky Realtors Association.

“We’ve seen communities leverage our KAR Kentucky Realtors Code Grant Program and are excited to see Montgomery County awarded this grant,” said Kentucky Realtors Association President Charles Hinckley.

Mt. Sterling–Montgomery County Industrial Authority is focusing its efforts on building a stronger economy in Montgomery County “as we begin to get on the other side of the pandemic,” said Jason Rainey, executive director.

“The pandemic has uncovered a lot of opportunities at a macroeconomic level that we know will benefit our Mt. Sterling economy as well as across Kentucky,” he said.

The Kentucky Realtors Association (KYR) and The Lexington Bluegrass Association of Realtors (LBAR) are committed to a long-term commitment to healthy communities for Kentucky homeowners, said Al Blevins, a real estate agent and former president of LBAR who also is a member of the Mt Sterling Montgomery County Industrial Board.

“KYR and LBAR makes available an annual financial investment to each State Realtor Region economic development organization within the primary service area. This initiative supports activities directly related to job creation, expansion and retention,” Blevins said. “Realtors do more than sell real estate. We believe it’s important to invest our time and resources into our communities.”
