Section 3 Program
What is Section 3?
Section 3 is a federally mandated program of the U.S. Housing & Urban Development Department. Under Section 3 of the HUD Act of 1968, amended in 1992, federal funding invested in housing and community development also provides employment opportunities for low-income people in the local jurisdiction, called "Section 3 Residents."
Section 3 requires that "to the greatest extent feasible," businesses and employers working on projects funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development should make a good faith effort to train and hire low-income individuals, and subcontract with businesses that do so.
Among the contracts covered by Section 3 are construction projects, extensive rehabilitations and other jobs that arise in connection with these activities.
What SDHC does:
SDHC helps Section 3 Residents find training and jobs with contractors seeking certain skills. It helps Section 3 Business Concerns with opportunity events and educational programs, promotes them in a directory and offers training and technical assistance.
For more information on the Section 3 program, contact SDHC’s Program Manager, Sharon Chambers-Feaster firstname.lastname@example.org (619) 578-7513.
