Building a Better Mississippi

Safe Builder Program

The Home Builders Association of Mississippi has partnered with AmFed, our endorsed worker's compensation and general liability provider, to create the Safe Builder Program. This program is intended to reward association members who have committed to education and practicing safety for its employees.

Eligible members can potentially save up to 10% with AmFed by participating in available continuing education opportunities and safety practices. ALL association members can utilize this savings benefit.
