What is RPAC?

A voluntary political action committee whose membership consists of REALTORS® and affiliates interested in actively and effectively protecting the real estate industry and the dream of homeownership by participating in government affairs at the local, state and federal levels.

 

What Does RPAC Do?

RPAC dollars are contributed to candidates who support real estate and REALTOR® interests.  Candidates who are pro growth and pro business most often receive RPAC support.  Party affiliation is irrelevant.  We are not Democrats or Republicans.  We are the REALTOR® Party.

You may refuse to contribute without reprisal. 85% of each contribution is used by your state RPAC to support state and local political candidates; 15% is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C. 30116.
