NAHB-established policy on resiliency guides advocacy efforts to respond to resiliency plans, policies and programs.Read policy
Existing resiliency plans, policies and programs, as well as those under development, will significantly impact how and where new homes and communities are built. They will also greatly influence how existing structures and cities are re-engineered, rebuilt and/or remodeled.
NAHB urges policymakers to focus resiliency efforts on implementing market-driven solutions that encourage greater resiliency in the housing industry while preserving housing affordability.
Recognizing the cross-cutting nature of these efforts, the National Association of Home Builders convened a working group on resiliency in 2015 to lead a comprehensive and coordinated approach to policy and advocacy work within the association.
