The Governmental Affairs Department works closely with local, state and federal elected officials on issues vital to our members’ livelihood. Forging and nurturing positive relationship with our elected officials is essential for our association and its effectiveness on the political front.
HBA Endorsed Candidates for Local, State & Federal Elections
Below you will find three slates of candidates, one local, one state and one federal. These slates represent candidates that are believed to be best for the industry and were selected through the processes designated by each respective level of HBA: local, state and federal.
We were extremely fortunate as an industry to get designated as an essential industry during the COVID-19 shutdown. Many staff, at all three levels of your HBA's, worked tirelessly with elected officials to make sure such a designation was upheld. If not for the great relationships we have with our elected officials, such a designation may not have been of top priority.
This election is extremely important to our industry's future.
Please VOTE, and encourage your coworkers, friends and family to do the same.

Through these efforts we are able to identify those politicians who are willing to listen to our issues and consider our point of view. This is where BUILD-PAC becomes invaluable.
The HBA BUILD-PAC (political action campaign) represents the recognition by our members that those elected into office are critical to the housing and development industry. Through generous contributions we are able to fund the best qualified and most worthy candidates for local office.
Because BUILD-PAC is bipartisan it affords us political clout in the election process. If you would like to support your industry, the most effective thing you can do is give a contribution to BUILD-PAC.
