Each year, the HBA membership collectively adds more than 1,400 new homes to the areas economic base. However, the HBA's community involvement extends much further. We are firmly committed to giving back to the community in all areas of our expertise. Our members are committed to various ongoing and completed projects that help improve the community in which we live, work and play. For many projects, donations include planning services, construction, labor and materials.
