January 10, 2022 Print ShareThis

Update: Materials are now posted for the Office Hours: HCD & PHA - Session 1 and Office Hours: HCD & PHA - Session 2.

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.

Do you have unanswered questions on HUD’s Section 3 Final Rule? Still not sure how to implement the requirements of the Section 3 Rule compliantly into your programs? Office Hours are now available to help support HUD housing and community development (HCD) and public housing authority (PHA) financial assistance recipients.

Training Objectives

Section 3 Final Rule participants will:

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

Who Should Attend?

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

Please note: Office Hours cannot accommodate HUD staff or consultants at this time.

Training Format

These 90-minute sessions will provide an opportunity for participants from the 2021 Section 3 Final Rule Training Series to ask questions about the training content and receive assistance with implementing Section 3 into their policies and programs.
