HOMEPAC, TAB's political action committee, is an essential part of TAB's advocacy program. HOMEPAC maximizes political contributions by association members by supporting pro-housing candidates and incumbents for both statewide office and the Texas Legislature. It is through voluntary contributions that HOMEPAC can help preserve a positive political climate for the residential construction and development industry in Texas.
Invest in HomePAC?
Without HOMEPAC’s participation, decisions affecting the future of the residential building industry will be influenced by other industries and groups, many of whom represent interests directly opposed to our own. It’s only through the voluntary contributions of our members that HOMEPAC can help preserve a positive political climate for the home building and development industry in Texas.

Invest today in the future of our industry! When the 10,000 members of the Texas Association of Builders come together through HOMEPAC, the home building industry maintains its strong presence at the Texas Capitol.

Your contribution to HOMEPAC is an investment in the future of our industry and one of the most affordable options for political involvement.
How does HOMEPAC work?
HOMEPAC is governed by a Board of Trustees who represent all areas of the state and their local home builders associations. The Trustees determine which political candidates will receive support based on the following criteria:
- The candidate’s voting record on issues important to the home building industry;
- The candidate’s membership on key committees that consider legislation important to home builders;
- The candidate’s leadership position; and
- The candidate’s understanding of the issues facing home builders and their readiness to assist in advocating for or defeating pieces of legislation important to our industry.
