Section 3 Program Coordination and Implementation: The purpose of Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968, as amended (12 U.S.C. 1701u), is to ensure that employment, training, and contracting opportunities generated by the expenditure of certain HUD funds shall be provided to low- and very low-income persons, particularly recipients of government assistance for housing, and to businesses that are either owned by or substantially employ these persons. As a result of Section 3, many families have achieved economic self sufficiency when HUD funds are spent in their local communities. A Section 3 Coordinator is responsible for assuring that funding recipients comply with the regulatory requirements of Section 3 and that the maximum amounts of economic opportunities are provided to eligible residents and business concerns.

Current Application Deadline: Aug 01, 2011 On June 7, 2011, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) posted the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for FY2010 Section 3 Program Coordination and Implementation. Pages 19-20 of the NOFA application describe the HUD Policy Priorities activities/outputs and outcomes that must be included in the Logic Model (HUD 96010) submissions of potential applicants.
