Investing in Housing
Amplify your voice!
The HBA’s Political Action Committee, HBA PAC, enables members to strengthen their civic involvement by helping to elect pro-housing candidates at the local and state level. Voluntary contributions from HBA members strengthen the HBA PAC’s participation and keeps the industry strong in the face of mounting challenges. HBA PAC Trustees meet several times throughout the year to take a close look at candidates running for public office and discuss how certain races could impact a wide range of issues. At a minimum, candidates must support industry positions on legislation, have a pro-housing voting record and be willing to meet with housing leaders to discuss industry issues.
Due to our advocacy efforts, we gain the attention of candidates who affect crucial decisions on building and economic development and efforts to pass legislation and regulations that protect homeownership. These legislators cast informed votes that make a difference in issues such as growth management, tax breaks, building codes, mandatory fire sprinklers, etc.

Elections matter and have a lasting impact. That is why it is so important for NAHB members to be engaged in the political process every step of the way. BUILD-PAC, the political action committee for the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), helps elect pro-housing, pro-business candidates to federal office and is critical to NAHB’s success on Capitol Hill.
KCHBA’s membership is one of the strongest supporters in the nation for BUILD-PAC and has twice in recent years ranked as the largest fundraiser in the nation for BUILD-PAC. Contributions to the national group not only support our Federal Legislators, but a portion of those contributions are provided to the HBA PAC which allows for additional support of local and state candidates.
