Section 3 is a provision of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968. The intent of Section 3 is to ensure that preference for employment, training, and contracting opportunities generated from the expenditure of certain HUD funds, is given to local low- and very low-income persons, particularly those who receive federal housing assistance, and businesses that are owned by or substantially employ such persons.
For more information on the requirements of Section 3, please visit www.hud.gov/Section3. If you are a recipient of government assistance for housing or if your income falls below HUD's income limits, you may qualify as a Section 3 worker, targeted worker or Section 3 business concern. Learn more about that here.
