The mission of the HBA is to provide and protect the American dream of homeownership for current and
future generations – we engage in activities, events, and educational programs for the benefit of members and
consumers alike. We are also involved in the state and local legislative and regulatory processes, advocating
for public policy initiatives and sustainable building techniques that balance the need for strong economic
growth and environmental protection. The HBA stands with our federation partners, the Pennsylvania Builders
Association (PBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), in pursuit of its mission.
Associate Membership is open to any individual, firm, or corporation whose business is directly related to
