With over 1,000 members, HBA is among the top 10 home builders associations in the nation and the largest in Louisiana.

The HBA was founded in Baton Rouge, LA, in 1953, by about 6 residential contractors who knew that their voice was louder and stronger as a group rather than individuals.

The association’s initial goal was to stop some of the unnecessary regulations being imposed on the industry that caused the cost of housing to increase. They also wanted the opportunity to stay on top of the best practices for residential construction. For the past 60+ years, those goals have not changed.

Originally the group was called the Home Builders & Apartment Association of Greater Baton Rouge and was located in a corner of a builder’s office in downtown. Later, office space was rented and more members joined the association. After a few more moves, the leadership purchased a lot and built the beautiful building where HBA is today. The name was changed to Capital Region Builders Association in 1997. In 2018, we shifted to the Home Builders Association of Greater Baton Rouge, better addressing our role in the community and on a national scale.

Yes, we compete against each other, but we are all working for the same goal. If one builder or vendor doesn’t do an excellent job that customer may not build or buy again, and it hurts every one of us. We must all proceed diligently, with integrity, and purpose.

Working together we make dreams come true. We do it so often that sometimes we don’t appreciate the magnitude of what we do…..at first it is just a patch of grass, maybe in a subdivision or maybe in a sugar cane field, but a few months later it is a safe haven filled with laughter and love for years to come. We do that, all of us. We are bankers, builders, remodelers, trade partners, and realtors. I encourage you to join with your industry partners and make a difference. Join us in helping make other people’s dreams come true.
