MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD



HOME-PAC, the political action committee of the Greater Houston Builders Association, is an essential part of GHBA’s advocacy program.

HOME-PAC directs financial support of the homebuilding industry and is committed to protecting housing affordability and consumer choices. Through your contribution, we are able to pool our resources and unite to support the best qualified, pro-housing candidates for local and state office. GHBA’s HOME-PAC empowers our members to help shape the political environment and elect candidates who will support our industry’s goal to provide Texans the opportunity to realize the dream of homeownership.

Changes in state law or regulations could be detrimental to your business. Your contribution to GHBA’s HOME-PAC is an investment in your company’s future and the future of our industry. It is one of the most affordable options for political involvement.

 

Help us fight for you!

No matter what government hurdle our industry faces there are only two tools to succeed: persuasion and power. HOME-PAC gives us political power. We need to speak as one industry with one voice.

It is through voluntary contributions that HOME-PAC can help preserve a positive political climate for the residential construction and development industry in Texas. For as little as $250/year you can help support industry-friendly candidates for local office as a Sustaining Member. As an added benefit, HOME-PAC Trustees and Sustaining Members are invited to join their elected officials at special events throughout the year at no additional cost. These events provide an exclusive opportunity to meet face to face with the decision-makers in the greater Houston area.

Without HOME-PAC’s participation, decisions affecting the future of the residential building industry will be influenced by other industries and groups, many of whom represent interests directly opposed to our own. It’s only through the voluntary contributions of our members that HOME-PAC can help preserve a positive political climate for the home building and development industry in Houston.

How Does HOME-PAC Work?


HOME-PAC, is governed by a Board of Trustees made up of Greater Houston Builders Association members who contribute $1,000 or more annually. These trustees determine which political candidates will receive support based on the following criteria:

  • The candidate’s voting record on issues important to the home building industry
  • The candidate’s membership on key committees that consider legislation important to home builders
  • The candidate’s leadership position
  • The candidate’s understanding of the issues facing home builders and readiness to assist in advocating or defeating legislation and regulation important to our industry

Here’s what our members say:

We recognize the invaluable service GHBA provides to all members in the way of education and advocacy, as well as the opportunity to build lifelong relationships. We only wish we had joined sooner, and strongly recommend that any company serious about the homebuilding industry do so as soon as possible.
