NIHBA History

Northern Illinois Home Builders Association (NIHBA) was founded in 1954 to promote home ownership and the interests of the Custom Home Building industry. Incorporated in 1956, it is an affiliated chapter of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the Home Builders Association of Illinois (HBAI).

In July 2012, the NAHB and NIHBA Board of Directors approved the merger of the Home Builders Association of Greater Fox Valley with the NIHBA -- resulting in a bigger, better and more exciting association for our membership.

The NIHBA attracts members from all areas of the home building industry. It has a diverse membership that includes not only home builders and remodelers, but also contractors, suppliers, land developers, engineers, designers, financial professionals, title institutions, and more.

Any company that provides a product or service to homebuilders and the building industry or homebuyers in DuPage, Kane, Will, LaSalle, Lake, and DeKalb counties is eligible for membership.

We invite you to become part of this exciting and progressive association and start...
