"In 2020, funding from HomePAC gave our government relations team the ability to fight for our industry during the pandemic. Their effort was a game changer - ensuring our industry was allowed to continue operations, while many shuttered." — Scott Turner, Riverside Homes & 2022 HBA Board President
HomePAC HomePAC 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. HomePAC’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.
