June 08, 2022 Print ShareThis

Update: Materials are now posted for all Office Hours Sessions.


Section 3 is a provision of the HUD Act of 1968 that promotes local economic development, neighborhood economic improvement, and individual self-sufficiency. To the greatest extent possible, Section 3 requires that recipients of certain HUD financial assistance provide job training and employment opportunities to low- or very low-income residents in connection with projects and activities in their neighborhoods.

Effective November 30, 2020, the new Section 3 Final Rule is designed to improve a focus on economic opportunity outcomes while simultaneously reducing the regulatory burden on those entities that receive those funds.

In 2021, HUD sponsored a Section 3 Final Rule Training Series which discussed key changes in the rule. To provide additional support after the training, these Office Hours sessions were held to help support HUD housing and community development (HCD) and public housing authority (PHA) financial assistance recipients.

Training Objectives

Section 3 Final Rule participants:

  • Had an opportunity to ask unanswered questions
  • Learned more about implementing the requirements of the Section 3 Final Rule

Who Should Attend?

The office hours were intended for HCD and PHA financial assistance recipients.
