Tiny Home Industry Association

The Tiny Home Industry Association (THIA) is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization on a mission to advocate for regulation changes, develop industry best practices and construction standards, AND increase widespread use of tiny homes as permissible and permanent housing.

About THIA

Launched in 2016 as a trade organization, Tiny Home Industry Association initially received support funding provided by the Colorado Blueprint 2.0 Initiatives, in coordination with the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, and under the leadership of former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper.


As THIA continues to grow, we strive to positively represent the broad array of interests involved in the commercial trades and the non-commercial interests in the industry and broader tiny home community in the US and around the world.
