Section 3 and Resident Hiring

HUD’s Section 3 Provision and BHA’s Section 3 Policy requires developers and contractors receiving certain federal funds for construction contracts to use their best efforts to provide training, employment, and contracting opportunities to Section 3 Workers, Targeted Section 3 Workers, and Section 3 Business Concerns. Developers and contractors must have, to the greatest extend feasible, employees that are Section 3 Workers working at least 25 percent or more of the total number of labor hours worked by all workers employed for the project. At least five (5) percent of that 25 percent must be the total number of labor hours worked by Targeted Section 3 Workers. Also, contractors must make their best efforts to award contracts and subcontracts to Section 3 Business Concerns that provide economic opportunities to Section 3 and Targeted Section 3 Workers.
