americanflagcapitolTo help elect pro-housing candidates in November, the BUILD-PAC Board of Trustees on Aug. 10 approved more than $500,000 in contributions to federal pro-business candidates running for office this fall.

Meeting during NAHB’s Midyear Board of Directors Meeting in Miami, the trustees also discussed how to increase fundraising efforts between now and Election Day, through state events across the country.

“This election year is more important than ever for the housing industry. The outcome on Nov. 8 will set the stage for the future of housing,” said BUILD-PAC chairman Eugen Graf. “We need to work together as an industry to support our champions and advocates in Congress this fall.”

As NAHB’s political action committee, BUILD-PAC helps elect the most qualified pro-housing, pro-business candidates to federal office. BUILD-PAC is bipartisan, supporting both Democrats and Republicans who help promote and protect the housing industry’s agenda.

BUILD-PAC’s Board of Trustees, comprised of 150 NAHB members throughout the country, determine which candidates receive support. During the 2014 election year, BUILD-PAC supported more than 370 pro-housing candidates, and 95% of these candidates won their seats in November.

NAHB also will begin endorsing Congressional candidates for the first time this fall, to help members identify the pro-housing candidates in their districts – and to remind members about the importance of participating in this election.
