The National Association of Home Builders is a Washington, D.C.-based trade association whose broad mission is to enhance the climate for housing, homeownership and the residential building industry. NAHB is a federation of more than 800 state and local associations, representing 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 1940s, NAHB’s primary goals have been 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.
