LNWA knows a strong, healthy homebuilding industry is essential to America’s economic prosperity and to providing quality, safe, affordable housing for citizens across the country. LNWA actively seeks and accepts opportunities to speak up for a fair and equitable business and regulatory environment for homebuilding on the national, state, and local levels.
The Leon N. Weiner & Associates (LNWA) commitment to passionate advocacy on behalf of the homebuilding industry has been an integral part of the company since its founding by Leon Weiner over 60 years ago. Today, LNWA continues to be a leading advocate for the industry.
