How Women Can Diversify and Grow the Home Building Industry - NAHB

A key initiative for NAHB’s Professional Women in Building Council is to cultivate a diverse residential construction industry, especially for women. 


NAHB Urges Agencies to Provide Additional Guidance on WOTUS Implementation

NAHB Chairman Alicia Huey issued a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) to provide additional guidance to its field staff, as well as the general public, on its new conforming rule for "waters of the United States" to ensure clarity and action.


At NAHB’s urging, Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) introduced S. 2806, the Homeowner Energy Freedom Act, legislation that would repeal a section of the Inflation Reduction Act that provides $1 billion to pressure state and local governments to adopt costly and restrictive energy codes. 


NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz provided the following economic overview in his bi-weekly newsletter Eye on the Economy. The bond market is anticipating the Federal Reserve will not increase rates at the conclusion of its monetary policy meeting next Wednesday.
