A Step-by-Step Guide to Training, Employing & Contracting with Section 3 Residents
Thanks to the Section 3 program, your job as a housing professional involves a lot more than providing housing to low-income households! You must also “to the greatest extent feasible” employ and train Section 3 residents—and award “economic opportunities.” If you’re confused by Section 3’s many rules and regulations—especially regarding the award, or procurement, process—start here.
In this webinar, public housing expert Paul Flogstad will discuss the key aspects of this federal program and show you how to comply with its many rules. Flogstad will explain how the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Housing and Development (HUD) defines a “Section 3 resident” (as well as the distinction between low-income and very-low-income), how Section 3 differs from other regulatory programs, and how to identify Section 3 “business concerns.”
After attending the webinar, you will be armed with the information you need to filly comply with Section 3 rules. HUD is monitoring your efforts here: It regularly reviews program reports and employment/contract records—and investigates violation complaints. So you must ensure you are properly training and employing Section 3 residents and awarding contracts to Section 3 businesses.
