By BUILDER Magazine Staff. To get the word out on local HBA's Home Builders Care projects, the NAHB is offering a brochure, new for 2002, that not only explains the national Home Builders Care program but also has space for local associations to customize their own brochures. It is the perfect cost-effective vehicle for building local awareness of the Care program

The NAHB subsidizes the cost. It helps the local HBA put together its information and gives the association the first 150 copies for no cost. The local HBA must provide text about its local project, its logo, and up to four pictures suitable for publication. The NAHB then gives the material to an outside vendor for design, editing, layout, and printing of the final brochure.

Once complete the local HBA merely has to pay for additional print runs beyond the first 150.

Specifics about the brochure, art, and ordering instructions, as well as a promotional kit to help local HBAs promote their projects are available on the NAHB members-only site at
