CWHBA works closely with local governments and other organizations to enable a homebuilding process that is predictable and reasonable for members, and affordable for consumers.  It’s not just local governments either, CWHBA partners with the Building Industry Association of Washington (BIAW) at the state level and with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) at the national level.


Our efforts are MEMBER DRIVEN – if the issue is important to the membership, it is important to CWHBA.


CWHBA also has a Political Action Committee called the Affordable Housing Council of the Central Washington Home Builders (AHCCW) that works to elect pro-business and pro-housing officials.


Whether it’s local, state, or national, the CWHBA’s goals are the same:

  • Regulations and Public Policy are Favorable
    • To Home Ownership
    • To a Sustainable Supply of Building Properties
    • To a Diversified Local Employment Base
    • To Efficiency and Effectiveness in Government Provided Services
  • Our Members are Informed
    • About industry related issues & those who impact public policy and regulations.
