To Any Interested Businesses:

Our office is reaching out to local businesses to inform you of HUD’s Section 3 Business Registry.

Section 3 is a provision of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968. The purpose of Section 3 is to ensure that preference for employment, training and contracting opportunities generated from the expenditure of certain HUD funds is directed to local low- and very low-income persons (Income Limits Attached), particularly those who receive federal housing assistance, and businesses that are owned by or substantially employ such persons.

The Section 3 regulation at 24 CFR Part 135.36 provides preference to Section 3 businesses that submit responsible bids for contracts and subcontracts but does not guarantee the award of contracts.
