The Home Building Industry Needs YOUR Help!

Please Contact Your Elected Officials.
Many of our Members have asked how they can contact elected officials to express concern about the City of Austin and Travis County’s Shelter-in-Place Orders. This update provides contact information and a letter template to send to your elected officials.  

Please note that by sending this letter, you are representing yourself and not the HBA.  The HBA continues to work closely with policymakers, stakeholders and others on behalf of you and the entire industry. 
Email members of the  Austin City Council  collectively by clicking  here or individually at the addresses below:

Email the members of  Travis County Commissioners   Court :

Many thanks to HBA Member, Justin Self with Manna Custom, for sharing his letter with you to use as a template or a starting point for your letter. 
PLEASE NOTE: The letter template contains links to documents that will not work if you submit it using the collective form for the Austin Council and Travis County Commissioners Court. If you would like to keep the links in your letter, you will need to enter each elected official’s email address separately.
It is strongly recommended that you modify and personalize
your letter to best tell your individual story and how the Order is affecting
you and the families with whom you work.
Your HBA Staff, Board and other volunteer Members, continue to work diligently to advocate on behalf of all HBA Members to keep the construction industry moving so our community has safe housing.
