RPAC is a non-partisan, self-supporting committee organized for the specific purpose of supporting candidates and ballot issues at the local, state and national levels. The fundraising subcommittee is responsible for raising the money that enables RPAC to be effective. With our pooled resources, we can contribute to the campaign of candidates who support REALTOR® positions. We can also contribute to organizations supporting or opposing a ballot issue. 30% of all RPAC funds are contributed to the national RPAC to be used at the Federal level and 70% is used at the local level to support candidates and laws that advocate for property rights and home ownership. Nebraska RPAC is strictly regulated by the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission.

Invest in RPAC and Invest in Your Business!
The REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) has a proud history of being one of the most powerful advocacy organizations in America. Throughout its decades-long history, RPAC has leveraged the grassroots power of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® to advance property ownership and the free enterprise system. RPAC has been tremendously successful in this noble quest.
However, the cost of making the collective voice of our association’s one million members heard at the National, State and Local levels grew dramatically with the Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission Supreme Court ruling in 2010. Now that unlimited soft dollars can be used when communicating with the public to influence voter opinions, competing in today’s new political landscape is more challenging – and expensive – than ever.
