A federation of more than 800 state and local associations, NAHB represents more than 140,000 members nationwide. About one-third of NAHB’s members are home builders and/or remodelers. The others are associates working in closely related specialties such as sales and marketing, housing finance, and manufacturing and supplying building materials.
Since its inception in the early 1940’s, NAHB has served as “the voice of America’s housing industry.” Its primary goals are to ensure that housing is a national priority and that all Americans have access to safe, decent and affordable housing, whether they choose to buy a home or rent.
NAHB’s various groups analyze policy issues, take the industry’s story to the public, monitor and work toward improving the housing finance system, and analyze and forecast economic and consumer trends. They also provide a wide range of business-related services to members and Home Builder Associations. NAHB also represents the industry’s interests on Capitol Hill as it strives to ensure that all housing remains a national priority when laws are made and policies are established. NAHB also works with federal agencies on regulations affecting the housing industry in areas such as mortgage finance, codes, energy, and the environment.
