About Section 3
Section 3 is a provision of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 whose purpose is to ensure that employment and other economic opportunities generated by certain HUD financial assistance shall, to the greatest extent feasible, and consistent with existing federal, state, and local laws and regulations, be directed to low- and very low-income persons, particularly those who are recipients of government assistance for housing and to business concerns which provide economic opportunities to low- and very low-income persons.
If you are a recipient of government assistance for housing or if your income falls below HUD's income limits, you may qualify as a Section 3 worker, targeted worker, or Section 3 business concern.
Bay County is an equal opportunity employer. Upon receipt and award of Housing and Urban Development Grant Funding, Bay County adheres to all local, state, and federal guidelines. The County makes its best effort to adhere to Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968, as amended. Currently, Bay County has been awarded 19 Projects that are funded in part or in whole with Housing and Urban Development funding. We will work with contractors to ensure that if Section 3 provisions are triggered that all projects will remain in full compliance with Section 3 of the HUD Act of 1968, as amended.
