Build Local. Build Better.
Build with a Member.
Acadian Home Builders Association (AHBA) is a 501(c)(6) non-profit trade organization founded in 1960 by a group of visionary builders who saw the need to form an organization dedicated to advancing the home building industry in Lafayette and the surrounding areas. Over the years, AHBA has grown to become an influential association in Acadiana representing over 700 members in four parishes: Lafayette, Acadia, St. Landry, St. Martin, & Vermillion. AHBA includes home builders as well as associate members whose industries support building such as real estate companies, mortgage lenders, and various subcontractors.
The Acadian Home Builders Association is a chapter of the Louisiana Home Builders Association (LHBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), and all members belong to all three organizations. AHBA strives to make Acadiana a better place to live through collaboration, political action, education and philanthropy.
