One of the most important benefits of HBA Membership is Advocacy. The Home Builders Association of Greater Austin is your voice and advocates at the City, County and State levels. We work tirelessly to ensure that the regulatory environment in the greater Austin area encourages growth and development, not restrict it. Whether it’s working on an Ordinance, testifying at Council, or helping our members with a permit delay or issue—we are here to represent YOU! Donations to the HBA’s HomePAC help ensure the HBA has the political clout necessary to make a difference in the election process so consider making a donation today. See an overview of our Advocacy Wins by year below.
Home PAC is the HBA’s autonomous Political Action Committee (PAC) administered by a Board of Trustees. The Board is comprised of an outstanding group of industry leaders selected to make decisions on how and when to focus the industry’s political resources to ensure a favorable housing and political environment for builders in the Greater Austin area. Home PAC’s purpose is to raise money as well as contribute to issue and candidate campaigns supportive of the housing industry. With increasing rules and regulations being imposed by all levels of government, the HBA needs the political clout to make a difference in the election process.
In addition to focusing on political campaigns, the HomePAC also researches voting records, conducts polling, and analyzes local and state initiatives. Together with the HBA’s Government Relations Staff, it serves as a well-recognized, respected political force in the region.Donate to HomePAC Corporate Donate to HomePAC Personal
