Grassroots Advocacy: Get Involved
Hammers & Gavels: This vital program represents the grassroots efforts of Pennsylvania's home building community. PBA works hard to effectively communicate our position on legislation and policy, but constituents are the keystone for many legislators. Even if you don't have a strong relationship with your Congressman, State Senator, or Representative, this is the perfect year to develop one. With so many changes occurring, local relationships with elected officials help maintain a voice for builders in Harrisburg. If you're interested in developing a stronger relationship with your elected officials, or learning more about the many issues that PBA deals with, contact us about the Hammers & Gavels program! Email Jill Pento.
PaCAH: The Committee for Affordable Housing raises money and supports campaigns of state legislators who work tirelessly for builders. This resource can make the difference between a win and a loss or an ally and an adversary. Even if you can't be a strong contributor to PaCAH fundraising efforts, we all have friends and business associates who are interested in helping our allies to victory. Getting involved in PaCAH not only allows you to help make decisions on who the committee supports, but also helps to identify new folks who join in our successes. Find out more on the PaCAH page or email Jill Pento.
Committee of 75: The Committee of 75 is PBA's major donor fundraising program. Personal contributions are targeted to Pennsylvania's legislative leaders.

The Builder Victory Fund: The Builder Fund allows an opportunity for corporate giving that supports expanded research and political communications. Builder Victory Fund levels of support range from $2,500 - $20,000. Learn more.
Builder Advocates: So many of our legislative issues are dependent on the strong voice of those who are or will be affected. We are always looking for members who are willing to be the voice behind our issues, whether its EPA regulation, exorbitant municipal fees, or reduced taxation on the industry. If you feel that you're particularly affected by one or more issues, let us know. We always have outlets for our members to be heard - video, press releases, news and media, and even legislative hearings! Email Jill Pento.
