Founded in 1942, the Home Builders Association of Dayton has worked to build a better Dayton and make the American dream attainable for many homeowners throughout the Miami Valley region. The Home Builders Association of Dayton is a professional organization of builders, developers, remodelers, and related businesses who aspire to be on the leading edge of homebuilding through networking, education, and industry advocacy

The mission of the Home Builders Association of Dayton is to make the Dayton region more attractive to businesses and residents, providing superior value in homeownership by:

  •  Promoting industry standards;
  •  Educating our members and the community;
  •  Marketing members’ capabilities; and
  •  Advocating responsible development


Since 1942, the Home Builders Association of Dayton has worked with local governments at the county, municipal and township levels to advance the interests of the home building industry, discourage needless regulation, and otherwise create and sustain a builder-friendly environment in the Dayton region.

Economic Development

The Association also works effectively with other local organizations dedicated to economic development. The Home Builders Association of Dayton is actively involved with the Dayton Development Corporation, County Corp, CityWide Development, and other economic development agencies.

Building 1,000 average single-family homes create 2,900 full-time jobs and generate $110.96 million in taxes and fees for all levels of government to support police, firefighters, and schools. 

Housing Affordability

Implementing solutions to the housing affordability crisis is the top issue for America’s home builders. Due to the complexity and nationwide and local scope of the problem, there is no single “silver bullet” solution to the challenge of making housing more affordable.

A range of factors have contributed to the increased cost of housing in recent years. That means the public and private sectors must work together to create innovative solutions that enable more families to achieve homeownership or have access to suitable rental housing.

State & Local Initiatives

The HBA of Dayton works in communities across the Dayton region to keep housing issues a priority with local regulators and policymakers. These efforts help to defeat excessive regulations and to protect your business.

Members can use these resources to become effective leaders and respected voices for the housing industry in their communities.

First Point of Contact

The Home Builders Association of Dayton serves as the community’s first point of contact for information on new construction. The Association annually screens thousands of calls for area consumers looking for advice and direction in the selection of a builder or associate.

Award-Winning Home Shows

The Association’s award-winning home shows – the Homearama Touring Edition, Citirama and Rehabarama – have drawn more than a million visitors over the past 20 years. Citirama and Rehabarama have won the highest national awards of the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.


Six HBA councils meet regularly to exchange views on common interests and concerns. These include the Small and Custom Builders Council, Large Volume and Developers Council, Sales and Marketing Council, Remodelers Council, Associates Council, and Past Presidents Council.
