HBAV requests action from Governor Northam

On Saturday, March 21'st HBAV sent a letter to Governor Ralph Northam requesting:

  • That Residential (Single Family and Multifamily) Construction be deemed an essential industry during the state of emergency.

  • That all approvals (Plans, Permits, Licenses, Authorizations) and any deadlines imposed by local governing bodies as part of a special use permit, conditional use permit, or subdivision process be extended for an amount of time equal the duration of the state of emergency.

Help with Medical Supplies and Blood Donations

We are all impacted by COVID-19, and we are doing everything we can to continue advocating for the homebuilding industry during these unprecedented times. Due to the intense need for hospital supplies, most especially respirators, the home building industry, as well as the construction industry at-large, has the ability to provide immediate help toward this pandemic on a local, state and national level.
Today, we hope that you will commit to an industry-wide drive to show that homebuilders are working together to help the healthcare system fight COVID-19. Time is of the essence.
Here is how you can help:
  1. The healthcare system needs masks and eye-protection equipment. Please consider if you, your trades or suppliers can donate a portion of their current supply to our drive.
  2. Please designate someone in your company to reach out to your teams to work on donations.
  3. Schedule and appointment with the American Red Cross to donate Blood.
