Vocational Education
Professional skilled tradesmen are the life-blood of our industry.  The Home Builders Association of Tuscaloosa, Inc. (HBAT) and the Home Builders Association of Alabama (HBAA) offer assistance to our local technical schools and community colleges in structuring and promoting related vocational programs.
              
Advocacy
The HBAT Alabama Builders Political Action Committee is a non-partisan committee organized for the specific purpose of raising funds to support pro-housing candidates of all parties at the state and local levels of government.  Contributions to Build-PAC are an investment in the future of your business and the home building industry as a whole. It is essential that we are able to support the candidates that understand and will fight for the issues important to us when they are in office. Candidates who receive support from Build-Pac know our critical issues and understand the depth of that support because it comes from thousands of builders and associates across the state. Build-Pac contributions are the key to our being able to promote a pro-housing agenda in the legislature and local governments statewide.  

Insurance
The Alabama Home Builders Self Insurers Fund (AHBSIF) was established in 1984 to provide all eligible members of the Home Builders Association of Alabama an affordable market for workers compensation coverage.  Designed for builders and contractors who are subject to the revenue fluctuations in the homebuilding industry, the AHBSIF Fund offers participants the option of quarterly or monthly payments based on the payroll for the previous period. Residential and light commercial builders, subcontractors, suppliers, and other businesses affiliated with the construction industry benefit from Fund participation.
