HUD sponsored

2021 Section 3 Final Rule Training Series – Region IX – Delivery 3


November 16-18, 2021



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.

The Office of Field Policy and Management sponsored this three-day virtual training to review the purpose, scope, and intent of Section 3, and detail the new Section 3 Final Rule. It included presentations, exercises, and knowledge checks.
