The purpose of Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968, as amended (12 U.S.C.
1701u), is to ensure that employment, training, and contracting opportunities generated by the expenditure of certain HUD funds shall be provided to low- and very low-income persons, particularly recipients
of government assistance for housing, and to businesses that are either owned by or substantially employ these persons.
As a result of Section 3, many families have achieved economic self sufficiency when HUD funds are spent in their local communities.
A Section 3 Coordinator is responsible for assuring that funding recipients comply with the regulatory requirements of Section 3 and that the maximum amounts of economic opportunities are provided to eligible residents and business concerns.
