Advocacy by definition is the public support for or recommendation of a particular cause or policy.
The Greater Fayetteville Apartment Association contributes to the Apartment Association of North Carolina's and the National Apartment Association's PAC's.
In 2010, the Apartment Association of North Carolina leaders identified the need for more focused, state-level lobbying efforts on behalf of the Multifamily industry As a result, the AANC Political Action Committee was formed. We are enthused about the AANC PAC, its goal of educating candidates for public office, and the potential benefits to the North Carolina apartment industry.
The AANC PAC needs you to help shape government in North Carolina!

The Apartment Association of North Carolina has officially launched the Multifamily Housing Coalition of North Carolina (MHCNC) Political Action Committee! Ahead of the 2022 election season. This bipartisan PAC will act as a dedicated campaign arm of AANC's advocacy efforts and further the associations' mission to actively and effectively engage in the political process at the local, state, and federal levels.
This means AANC will officially operate two PACs. AANC's traditional PAC will continue to accept contributions from individual donors and be the primary conduit for all contributions received during official AANC PAC fundraisers. The Multifamily Housing Coalition of North Carolina PAC accepts corporate contributions and will be responsible for indirect candidate advocacy and single-issue advocacy. While these two PAC's will work in tandem, there are a few significant differences between the MHCNC PAC and AANC's traditional PAC:
- The MHCNC PAC will be able to raise funds from individuals, corporations, unions, and other organizations.
- There are no limitations on donation size.
- Funds raised may not be used to contribute directly to a candidate. However, funds can be used to advocate for or against political candidates and policy issues.
If your organization is ready to donate to MHCNC go here today!
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 good government and understand the needs and concerns of the multi-family housing industry.If you are in housing, you are in politics. From fair housing to flood insurance, energy to the environment, the 535 members of the US Senate and House of Representatives play a huge role in shaping the policy and economic climate for the apartment housing industry.
It takes not only the collective power of the NAA, but also the work of individuals at the grassroots level to make sure we, as an industry, are at the table and not "on the menu" when important policy decisions are made.

NAA is prohibited from using general account funds such as membership dues or other revenue to contribute to federal elections. That means NAAPAC, by pooling the individual contributions of NAA and affiliate members, is the only vehicle through which NAA and its members may participate in the political process. 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. This “hard money” donation is heavily regulated and monitored by the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
