A

To comply with both Section 3 and Vicinity Hiring Preference requirements, the grantee (or its partner) should give first preference to: hiring low-income residents and contracting with Section 3 business concerns in the NSP target area. If there are not enough low-income residents or Section 3 business concerns in the target area, then the grantee can look to hire/contract with qualified residents and businesses from the Section 3 priority areas. The Section 3 priority areas are: first, residents of the neighborhood or service area; second, HUD Youthbuild participants; and third, other residents of the metropolitan area or non-metropolitan county.
