HUD High Performing Agency
Section 3 is a federally mandated program of the U.S. Department of Housing and UrbanDevelopment (HUD). Under Section 3 of the HUD Act of 1968, federal funding invested in housing and community development shall provide contracts, employment, training, and other economic opportunities to low- and very low-income people in the local jurisdiction and to businesses that provide such opportunities, also known as “Business Concerns.”
Section 3 requires that "to the greatest extent feasible," businesses working on projects that receive certain financial assistance from HUD must make a good faith effort to train and hire low- and very low-income individuals, and contract with businesses that do so. The program is implemented and regulated by Part 135 of Title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations (24 CFR 135).
Employment opportunities for SDHC certified Section 3 Residents may include: professional, technical, construction, and administrative.
Contracting and/or subcontracting opportunities for SDHC certified Section 3 Businesses include but are not limited to construction, professional services, and general services.
The San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) complies with Section 3 within its own operations and ensures the compliance of its sub-recipients, developers, contractors, and subcontractors.
