At the 2017 Midyear Meeting, NAHB awarded two Legal Action Fund grants to NAHB members locked in litigation that stands to impact the housing industry in their states. The Legal Action Fund is administered by NAHB’s Legal Action Committee, and provides grants, friend-of-the-court or “amicus” briefs, and strategy assistance to HBAs and members.

The Colorado Association of Home Builders is battling a state law that would severely limit growth in the state’s most populated counties. NAHB provided a $15,000 grant to defray litigation costs.

In New Hampshire, an EPA stormwater permit is following a troubling trend of permits that go beyond what the Clean Water Act allows. A $25,000 grant to the New Hampshire HBA from NAHB will support the state as it fights this permit.

Do you have a case that involves an industry problem or national issue, and that could benefit from funding or an amicus brief? To apply or to learn more about the Legal Action Fund, please visit nahb.org/legalfund or email legalaffairs@nahb.org.
