Center for Responsive Politics
Home Builder Campaign Contributions

National Assn of Home Builders

The National Association of Home Builders is a federation that represents state and local home building groups across the country. One of the group’s leading goals is to press members of Congress and the White House to allocate funds to stimulate the nation’s housing market, whether that’s through tax cuts or increased appropriations for the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Increasingly, however, the group has been actively lobbying on so-called smart growth issues. Home builders want Congress to pass environmental regulations they believe are favorable to the industry, including a rollback of some portions of the Clean Air Act and other notable regulations.

METHODOLOGY: The numbers on this page are based on contributions of $200 or more from PACs and individuals to federal candidates and from PAC, individual and soft money donors to political parties, as reported to the Federal Election Commission. While election cycles are shown in charts as 1996, 1998, 2000 etc. they actually represent two-year periods. For example, the 2002 election cycle runs from January 1, 2001 to December 31, 2002. Data for the current election cycle was released by the Federal Election Commission on Monday, October 31, 2005.
NOTE: Soft money contributions were not publicly disclosed until the 1991-92 election cycle and are not allowed in the 2003-2004 cycle.
