Texas Apartment Association’s Political Action Committee

TAA’s PAC is an integral part of TAA’s advocacy efforts on behalf of the Texas rental housing industry.

Texas has one of the nation’s best operating climates for the rental housing industry, and the Texas Apartment Association advocates on behalf of our members to keep it that way.

The Texas Apartment Association’s Political Action Committee is one of the largest trade association PACs in Texas. As an essential part of TAA’s advocacy efforts, the TAA PAC pools the voluntary contributions of our investor members to support candidates for the Texas Legislature and for statewide office who favor a healthy business climate for the state, our industry and our communities.

$750,000 contributed to Texas candidates in the last two years

TAA’s PAC is in the state’s Top 10 for trade associations

Who can contribute to the TAA PAC?
TAA members and local associations contribute to the TAA PAC. Contributions are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The TAA PAC accepts contributions from individuals, sole proprietorships and LLCs without corporate ownership. The TAA PAC does not accept corporate funds. PAC investments are not tax deductible.

How are TAA PAC funds used?
We support candidates for the Texas Legislature and for statewide elected offices. In some cases, the TAA PAC contributes to candidates for local elected offices. The TAA PAC is nonpartisan.

Who decides how TAA PAC funds are used?
Volunteer leaders determine who receives contributions, and the TAA PAC Board of Trustees approves all TAA PAC contributions to candidates. The TAA Legislative Committee makes initial recommendations to the TAA PAC Board of Trustees.

Supporting your profession and your association is important in its own right, but TAA members who invest in the TAA PAC will also receive these benefits:
