The purpose of Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 (12 U.S.C. 1701u) (Section 3) is to foster local
economic development, neighborhood economic improvement, and individual self-sufficiency. As part of Section 3, St. Cloud HRA
seeks to link affordable housing residents, Housing Choice Voucher participants, and other low-income individuals to employment,
training and contract opportunities in connection with projects and activities in their neighborhoods. St. Cloud HRA encourages its
contractors or subcontractors to make every effort
to hire low-income residents to the greatest extent possible when working on projects funded by HUD.
