Section 3 REGISTERED - you must register to be considered S3 qualified.
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.
