At the 2023 Spring Leadership Meeting in Washington, D.C., the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) State and Local Government Affairs Committee awarded seven Home Builders Associations (HBAs) a total of $105,000 in financial assistance through the State and Local Issues Fund (SLIF). This year's recipients are all working individually to resolve a number of housing affordability issues, from overcoming development restrictions to increasing residential building codes, NAHB reports.

SLIF support will help increase the frequency of the workshops, provide broader geographical access, expand the scope of their offerings and add instructors.
