The KCHBA promotes homeownership through education, research and community outreach. We support diverse and attainable housing for everyone in Kansas City.


  • Serve as a champion for homeownership for everyone in Kansas City through leadership, representation and innovation.
  • Provide education to members and the broader Kansas City community to assist with homeownership, economic awareness and diverse housing options.
  • Contribute to the greater good of the Kansas City community through philanthropy, volunteerism and diversity/inclusivity.
  • Build strong connections inside and outside the KCHBA by collaborating, building relationships and supporting community efforts.


The Home Builders Association was established in 1937 when less than 100 builders designated themselves as the builder division of the already existent Real Estate Board. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) granted the HBA an official charter on Oct. 31, 1945. Four public events in particular have brought distinction to the KCHBA including the Fall Parade of Homes in 1947, the Home Show in 1948, the Spring Parade of Homes in 1962 and the Artisan Home Tour in 2015.
