The Section 3 program requires that recipients of certain HUD financial assistance, to the greatest extent possible, provide job training, employment, and contract opportunities for low- or very-low-income residents in connection with projects and activities in their neighborhoods. Section 3 ensures that HUD-funded jobs, training, and contracts are provided to low-and very low-income residents of the community where the funds are spent, and to businesses that are owned by, or employ, such services. As a recipient of Section 3 HUD-funded Public and Indian Housing assistance it is the obligation of the Brainerd HRA to ensure that contractors and subcontractors understand and comply with the goals of Section 3 whenever possible, and contracts are awarded priority to Section 3 certified businesses. In order to comply with HUD regulations, it is your responsibility to SELF-CERTIFY your business annually on the Section 3 Business Registry. Questions, please contact John Schommer at (218) 824-3432.
To search the database for self-certified Section 3 businesses, register your business for inclusion, or for more information on the Business Registry, please visit HUD.GOV. Section 3 Certification Questionnaire. Please mail or drop off this form so the Brainerd HRA is aware you are registered as a Section 3 business and to be included on bid lists.
