The Housing First mission:
Housing First’s mission is to engage in political communications that advance the message of the homebuilding and remodeling industry through issue advocacy and candidate endorsements, complimenting BATC’s advocacy efforts & core mission.
Housing First is comprised of three important elements:
- The Housing First Network, which focuses on elevating and advocating for our industry's key issues.
- The Housing First PAC, where we can make direct, face-to-face contributions to candidates.
- The Housing First Fund, which can initiate support for candidates (but cannot coordinate with them).
The Housing First Network promotes a pro-housing message. Its goal is to elevate housing in the eyes of the general public and political influencers.

Housing First PAC
The Housing First Political Action Committee (PAC) endorses candidates for elected office. The PAC uses specific criteria to determine its endorsements. These include: the candidate’s demonstrated support for housing issues, leadership on key housing issues, candidate electability, and a strong housing and business voting record for incumbent candidates.
The Housing First Fund is an Independent Expenditure Fund registered
with the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board.
The Housing First Fund supports candidates through
independent expenditures supporting their candidacy. The Housing First
Fund is not affiliated with any political party – it's focused solely on
supporting pro-homebuilding industry individuals to elected office.
