State Support Grants

The ASC provides grants to support State agencies’ compliance with Title XI in the following areas:

Notice of Funds Availability

The fifty U.S. States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the United States Virgin Islands are eligible for ASC grants. The legal recipient in each State would be the State Appraiser Certifying and Licensing Agency, subject to oversight by the ASC, and with jurisdiction for:

(1) credentialing and supervising certified and licensed real estate appraisers eligible to perform appraisals for federally related transactions

(2) registering and supervising appraisal management companies (AMCs).

The ASC makes awards to support the efforts of eligible State Agencies to comply with Title XI. The statute lists two areas of support:

(1) the complaint process, complaint investigations, and appraiser enforcement activities of such agencies

(2) the submission of data on State licensed and certified appraisers and State registered AMCs to the National Registries.

In addition to the statutorily defined activities, the ASC uses its authority to make grants that improve the State regulatory processes and advance the appraisal industry through grants that support high-quality, impact-oriented programming by State Agencies and partner organizations identified in their proposals.

The ASC Board may periodically identify additional activities it will fund in support of meeting these goals.
