While NAHB has established a well-deserved reputation on Capitol Hill as an elite power player that wields influence to get pro-housing bills introduced and passed, the association’s Intergovernmental Affairs team is also delivering concrete results by fighting every day on behalf of our state and local home builders associations on major issues that affect our members’ bottom lines.

Through its State and Local Issues Fund, which provides financial assistance to HBAs involved in advocacy efforts on issues affecting the affordability of homeownership, NAHB distributed $298,000 to 18 HBAs in 14 states during 2023. Here are a few notable success stories:

Impacting Local Legislation and Regulations

NAHB works tirelessly to create a better business environment for all those involved in the residential construction industry by tracking more than 3,500 housing-related bills in all 50 states that could affect our members.

Looking back on 2023, here are a few highlights of when local and state HBAs shined a light on key issues, challenged regulations that do more harm than good, and fought to level the playing field against powerful interests that could put struggling builders, remodelers and their suppliers out of business:
