Many HUD programs require housing providers, housing developers, and contractors to comply with federal labor provisions. This includes paying federal prevailing wage rates on covered projects. HUD’s Office of Davis-Bacon and Labor Standards (DBLS) is responsible for the administration and enforcement of federal labor standards and maintenance wage rate requirements in HUD programs. DBLS works with contractors, housing and community development industry groups, governmental agencies at the local, state, and tribal level, and organized labor groups to administer and enforce these federal labor provisions.
HUD DBLS provides these self-paced online trainings to support the education of new directors and staff managing HUD grants or public housing authorities that are covered by Davis-Bacon and Related Acts (DBRA). The trainings assist new staff to understand the federal labor standards requirements under DBRA. Additionally, these trainings are great refresher courses for experienced staff within Local Contracting Agencies (LCAs) on requirements under DBRA.
