HUD released its Section 3 Guidebook. Section 3 is a provision of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 that ensures employment, training and contracting opportunities for low- and very low-income workers and eligible businesses in connection with the planning, construction and rehabilitation of housing and community development projects assisted by HUD. The new guidebook is a complement to the Section 3 Rule and provides the latest guidance, tools and resources to support HUD grant recipients and sub-recipients, contractors and Section 3 businesses in implementing and applying Section 3 to HUD-funded projects and activities.
