The Northshore Home Builders Association was created in 2015 by the merger of the former St. Tammany Home Builders Association and the former Tangipahoa Home Builders Association. These two organizations were chartered in 1977 and 1979 respectively, and together now form the third largest HBA in Louisiana with 900+ members. A third of these members are builders. The remaining two thirds are professionals directly connected with the home building industry, such as trade contractors, suppliers, mortgage lenders, and realtors. The NHBA mission is to support legislative, economic and educational initiatives that promote and protect the American dream of homeownership.
The NHBA offers educational seminars for its members in areas such as consumer preferences, marketing, finance, and industry regulations and legislation. They also participate in the community sponsoring charity events and making donations to local charities and organizations. The NHBA works closely with LHBA, NAHB, and governmental agencies to improve the political climate for the home building industry, promoting policies that provide opportunities for all Americans to have safe, decent and affordable housing.
The Northshore HBA is a non-profit organization not associated with any governmental organization. Our service area includes all of St. Tammany Parish, Tangipahoa Parish and Washington Parish. The association employs a professional staff that provides day-to-day management of the association.
