NC BUILD-PAC

SUPPORT NC BUILD-PAC – Support our Industry!

Kathy Craven Snodgrass, HBAWS NC BUILD PAC Chairperson

The Political Action Committee of the North Carolina Home Builders Association (NC BUILD-PAC) is a non-partisan committee organized for the specific purpose of raising funds to support pro-housing candidates of all parties at the state and local levels of government.

Contributions to NC BUILD-PAC are an investment in the future of your business and the home building industry as a whole. It is essential that we are able to support the candidates that understand and will fight for the issues important to us when they are in office. Candidates who receive support from NC BUILD-PAC know our critical issues and understand the depth of that support because it comes from thousands of builders and associates across the state. NC BUILD-PAC contributions are the key to our being able to promote a pro-housing agenda in the legislature and local governments statewide.

The National Association of Home Builders sponsors a political action committee (NAHB BUILD-PAC) that represents the interests of home builders at the federal level. The NC BUILD-PAC and NAHB BUILD-PAC are not affiliated; however, the combined scope ensures that candidates who share the interests and concerns of the home building industry are elected at every level of government. For information regarding the NAHB BUILD-PAC, please visit www.nahb.org/buildpac.

Elections matter and have a lasting impact. That’s why it is so important for NAHB members to be engaged in the political process every step of the way.

BUILD-PAC, NAHB’s bipartisan political arm, helps elect pro-housing, pro-business candidates to federal office and is critical to NAHB’s success on Capitol Hill.

The 2017-2018 election cycle was one of the most competitive, and therefore expensive, cycles we have seen. With an unprecedented number of retirements and resignations, we must ensure our coffers are full long before Election Day in 2020 if we want to continue to elect pro-housing candidates.


Why should you give to NC BUILD-PAC!


We save you money on each house you build and market!

Some of the major accomplishments:

  • Builder inventory exemption for property taxes.
  • New construction exempted from sales tax on labor.
  • Orange County impact fee (up to $11,000 per home) eliminated.
  • Building inspections to be completed within 2 business days.
  • Elimination of aesthetic controls by local governments.
  • Require building inspectors to perform the entire inspection.

These items save our builders and their team MONEY and TIME!

NC BUILD-PAC is our way of working together to fund candidates that support these types of issues.

How long would it take to build a house if inspections were taking 8 business days? (It happened in the Triangle.)

How much would sales tax on labor cost per new home? ($5,000 on average per house).

How much money do building companies save with the builder inventory exemption on property tax?  (One company saved over $500,000 last year!)

Give today and give generously!  Your livelihood depends on it!

Mike Carpenter, NCHBA


Dear HBAWS Members,

On behalf of the Build PAC Committee, I would like to thank you for your support of housing during the election year of 2018!!!

Whether your candidate of choice was successful or not, most of the candidates that support housing made it through this election.

To continue to support our elected officials locally we need to continue to raise Build PAC funds.

We are exceeded our $7,500 2018 Goal!!!!!

For every $1.00 raised for PAC 25% of this goes to our local reserve for candidates that we want to support locally.

But without ALL of our members’ support, we can’t replenish our reserves each year.

Please help us reach this year’s goal with a pledge to Build PAC and support the industry that supports you!!!

Kathy Craven Snodgrass, BUILD PAC Chairperson

NC BUILD-PAC is the state political action committee. NC BUILD-PAC pools member contributions to help elect pro-housing candidates to the General Assembly, County Commissioners, Town Council, and the courthouse. Widely recognized as one of the most influential PACs in the state, NC BUILD-PAC gives the NCHBA a powerful voice in the state and local governments.
