NAHB’s advocacy efforts on behalf of the home building industry extend beyond legislative houses. NAHB often challenges onerous federal regulations in court, and actively supports members and HBAs doing the same at the state and local levels.
The NAHB Legal Action Fund provides financial support to builders, developers, and state and local HBAs to help defray litigation costs in cases that could help the industry as a whole. It is an important member benefit that can be considered an industry benefit.
The NAHB Legal Action Committee meets three times each year — at NAHB leadership meetings — to consider applications for financial support. The deadline for consideration at the 2024 International Builders’ Show is this Friday, Feb. 2.
Members and HBAs engaged in or considering a legal challenge should submit an application as early as possible in the process. NAHB can also offer additional support in cases, especially before they are filed.
Members and HBAs considering an application should remember that cases chosen by the Legal Action Committee are ones of national importance or that address an issue common to home builders across jurisdictions.
