Industry Partnerships


The NWFA partners with numerous industry organizations to expand its reach and strengthen our industry voice.


The Hardwood Federation (HF) coordinates industry policy positions to ensure a unified voice on legislation impacting hardwood businesses. The HF acts as the industry’s advocacy voice on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

Each year, NWFA members participate in the Hardwood Federation Fly-In, an opportunity to address the many challenging issues our industry faces including environmental regulations, green building standards, immigration, tax reform, and more.

The Hardwood Federation PAC (Political Action Committee) offers a direct means to participate in shaping sound public policy and voicing views on issues related to the industry. The HFPAC also maximizes our ability as an industry to educate lawmakers in Washington on workable solutions to the problems we face every day.

The foundation offers its “Truth About Trees” curriculum, which includes lesson plans, videos and games, free of charge. Other resources for children, educators, and wood flooring professionals interested in leading instruction are available. Learn more about the NAFF.
