Continuing a long-term commitment to healthy communities for central Kentucky homeowners, the Lexington-Bluegrass Association of REALTORS® (LBAR) announced its $2,000 investment in the Richmond Industrial Development Corporation.

This annual initiative supports activities directly related to job creation, expansion and retention. A financial investment is available to each local economic development organization within LBAR's 26-county primary service area as a way to fund programs that will promote and build the local economy.
