The HFA is committed to championing the causes & issues important to you as a home furnishings retailer.

Our team of retail volunteers and staff work closely with our Washington, D.C. counsel and industry and national associations and organizations to bring you the up-to-the-minute information on government issues that can and will impact your business.

We do the research, gather the information, and monitor the issues so we can keep you well-informed and prepared to take action when needed. As members you’ll receive the benefit of timely information tailored to our industry and recommendations on how to respond—whether it’s making a simple phone call to your representative or taking a more active role and joining our Government Relations Action Team.

Government relations are a critical part of business. It’s not just about politics—it’s about the Marketplace Fairness Act for sales tax collection, interchange fees on bankcard processing, EPA regulations, Department of Transportation regulations, healthcare reform, tax reform, and much, much more. We’ll be your eyes and ears in Washington, D.C.
