"Section 3" is the popular name of a HUD requirement
that ensures that employment, job training and other economic opportunities
are provided to public housing residents and certain targeted individuals
by HUD financial assistance
Section 3 ensures that the residents, located in the area where
Federal Assistance is being provided for housing and community development
opportunities, have the opportunity to participate in the community
revitalization. This is most often in the form of employment opportunities,
but it can also be through other economic opportunities.
The NBHA maintains a Section 3 list, and actively seeks out employment
opportunities for the residents on that list. The NBHA has other
resident training programs that provide residents with job training
opportunities that will better prepare residents for a job placement
when one is available. For more information
