BuildSpec Loan Program
The BuildSpec Loan Program is a program that provides an incentive for builder members of the South Dakota Home Builders Association to build speculative homes.
The program is a partnership with the South Dakota Home Builders Association and the South Dakota Housing Development Authority whereby the South Dakota Housing Development Authority makes low interest construction loans to builder members of the South Dakota Home Builders Association for speculative homes.

Business Diagnostics & Plans of Actions with Small Business Growth Partners
Small Business Growth Partners is a cutting-edge, construction and trade-specialized coaching & consulting firm that is used by nearly 50% of the U.S. HBAs across the country.
Business Growth Partners specializes in helping builders, remodelers, and associate members grow, systemize, and streamline their businesses and, in the process, help them increase their bottom line. They work only with builder association members – they do not work with the general public. They support our industry and respect the professionalism of the HBA membership.
To test their service in South Dakota, the first 50 member companies that express an interest in joining the pilot program will have a Business Diagnostic Plan of Action (BPA) done at no cost to the participating company. The BPA is approximately 50 pages long and reviews your business operations closely (and confidentially), evaluating everything from your marketing and sales results, internal processes and systems, your team, and the overall profitability of your business.

Health Plan Options
The home building industry requires health care solutions that fit its unique needs. Home builders demand health coverage to enhance business culture, increase productivity, and reduce turnover and absenteeism. The Home Builders Association offers its members exclusive pricing for Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield coverage throughout South Dakota. Wellmark is the only health insurance carrier endorsed by the South Dakota Home Builders Association.
Association members statewide will be able to work with a designated insurance agent, to select the best plan for their company. Take a look at some of the key features of the plan, then contact the Association’s Insurance Representative!
