Section 3 Preference - The Section 3 program requires that recipients of certain HUD financial assistance, to the greatest extent
possible, provide job training, employment, and contract opportunities for low- or very-low income residents in connection with projects
and activities in their neighborhoods. Section 3 ensures that HUD-funded jobs, training, and contracts are provided to low-and very low-
income residents of the community where the funds are spent, and to businesses that are owned by, or employ, such services. As a
recipient of Section 3 HUD-funded Public and Indian Housing assistance it is the obligation of the St. Cloud HRA to ensure that
contractors and subcontractors understand and comply with the goals of Section 3 whenever possible and contracts are awarded priority
to Section 3 certified businesses. In order to comply with HUD regulations, it is your responsibility to SELF-CERTIFY your business
annually on the Section 3 Business Registry. Questions, please contact Sandy Hunter at 320-202-3154.
