About APAC & NAAPAC
Learn about the multifamily industry's most influential political action committees.
What is PAC?
The purpose of a political action committee (PAC) is simple: to raise funds and elect candidates who understand and support our issues and interests.
Why Should I Get Involved?
The South East Florida Apartment Association (SEFAA) is the leading advocate for housing providers in Southeast Florida. SEFAA is seeking to make a difference in the multifamily industry and strives to provide a quality standard of living for the residents in the South Florida area. The ability of apartment owners to continue to provide safe, affordable rental housing to our residents, and deliver valued services to them – while doing this effectively, efficiently, and profitably – rests on the continued financial strength of APAC and NAAPAC. Our involvement offers us a seat the table, increased credibility and influence, and of course continued success within the industry.
About SEFAA and APAC
SEFAA and the Apartment Political Action Committee (APAC) are two organizations in the multifamily housing industry that are focused on providing affordable and safe housing. These organizations work together simultaneously to advocate for or against bills that go through the government and legislation in order to attain positive growth and funding for the industry.
What is APAC?
The main goal of APAC is to help advance the interest of its members through political advocacy at state and local government levels. The purpose is to increase funds and select candidates that support and want to make a difference in interests and issues within the community. One of the main bills APAC has passed is HB 535, which allows CAMTs to work on HVAC, AC, and water heaters. Another main objective of APAC is to create housing funds without raising taxes; the organization strives to provide safe and affordable housing for the community.
What is NAAPAC?
The National Apartment Association Political Action Committee (NAAPAC) is NAA's political action committee and an essential arm of the NAA’s advocacy on behalf of the apartment housing industry. NAAPAC is a bi-partisan PAC that supports Congressional candidates who represent the good government and understand the needs and concerns of the multi-family housing industry.
What's the Difference?
Contributions to APAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. Contributions are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. A member (or member company) is free to contribute more or less than the suggested amount. FAA Affiliates, such as SEFAA, may also host events in which funds are raised directly to support APAC.
NAA is prohibited from using general account funds, such as membership dues or other forms of revenue, to contribute to federal elections. NAAPAC may only accept personal contributions from members of the NAA and its affiliates. Any funds collected are disbursed directly to the campaign of a candidate or incumbent member of Congress.
