  • NAHB has created an online document, CARES Act and Small Business Lending Programs, that offers more details about these small business lending programs, including the conditions required for loan forgiveness.

  • NAHB has also prepared an online FAQ for businesses considering applying for a PPP 7(a) loan. The FAQs cover eligibility, purposes for which funds can be used, loan forgiveness conditions, and documents needed for an application.

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.

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.

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 creates 2,900 full-time jobs and generates $110.96 million in taxes and fees for all levels of government to support police, firefighters and schools. 


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.
