Looking out for your business at all levels of government
With a strong voice for the home building industry at cities and counties throughout the mid-valley region, at state agencies and the Oregon legislature, and at Congress and federal agencies, the Home Builders Association of Marion & Polk Counties, along with the Oregon Home Builders Association and National Association of Home Builders advocates for housing affordability and fights legislation that would increase costs. We work to educate elected officials about the realities of the home building industry, promoting sound, positive legislation, while keeping you informed of new laws and regulations that can critically affect your profitability and the way you do business.
We aim to be proactive in the regulatory process, make sure lines of communication are open between the industry and government, fight unfair regulation, and help maintain a level playing field so our members can operate their businesses as effectively as possible.
Political Action Committee
Elections matter and have a lasting impact on housing affordability and the economic health of our community, which is why the HBA takes an active role in local and state elections.
The Mid-Valley Affordable Housing Coalition, the non-partisan political action committee (PAC) of the Home Builders Association of Marion & Polk Counties, helps elect candidates who understand the impact of regulations on the cost of housing and who support issues important to small businesses.

New Product House
The HBA New Product House is a collaborative project of the association’s membership, with a house built annually through the donations and discounts of labor and materials.
Proceeds from the sale of the house help fund political action efforts at the local level through the Mid-Valley Affordable Housing Coalition PAC, and Oregonians for Affordable Housing – the political action committee of the Oregon Home Builders Association.
The house is the featured home in the HBA’s annual Tour of Homes where it is viewed by thousands of area housing consumers. Dozens of material suppliers and subcontractors contribute to the house, and contributors receive recognition in the association’s publications and events.
Let us know if you’d like to be involved in the construction of a future New Product House.
