Mid-Minnesota Builders Association // Mission Statement

The Mid-Minnesota Builders Association (MMBA) of Crow Wing, Wadena & lower Cass Counties, fundamental purpose is to foster a healthy business environment for the home building industry, and to engage in activities that strengthen competitiveness, professionalism, and the public's confidence in the industry. The MMBA represents over 220 members involved in and supporting all phases of the home building industry. 



Homeownership is the foundation of strong families and healthy communities, and Mid-Minnesota Builders Association (MMBA) believes lawmakers should be doing everything they can to encourage homeownership, not making it harder. That's why we've joined "Minnesota Homes Matter".

Minnesota Homes Matter is a proactive, educational campaign supported by a broad coalition of homeowners, builders, bankers, local business groups and REALTORS® across Minnesota. The mission is to take the message to our lawmakers, to protect homeowners, their property rights and their tax benefits such as the Mortgage Interest Deduction. Lawmakers need to understand the importance of the housing market on our economy.
