THA Section 3 Policy

THA Section 3 Policy

The Tuscaloosa Housing Authority updated it's Section 3 Policy to comply with HUD's Section 3 Final Rule.

A copy of the policy can be found here

The purpose of Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 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 toward low and very low-income persons, and to businesses that provide economic opportunities to low and very low-income persons.

As a recipient of federal funds, the Tuscaloosa Housing Authority (THA) shall comply with Section 3 requirements set forth at 24 CFR 75 of the federal regulation which states that, to the greatest extent possible, businesses and employers working on HUD-funded projects must make a good faith effort to train and employ low-income individuals living in the local area and also to contract with businesses owned by or that employ Section 3 workers.
