Section 3 is a provision of the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Act of 1968 that helps foster local economic development, neighborhood economic improvement and individual self-sufficiency. HUD’s Section 3 Program requires recipients of the agency’s financial assistance, including Fort Worth Housing Solutions, to make a concerted effort to hire and contract with Section 3-eligible individuals and business concerns with a focus on qualifications, cost, and insurance/bonding requirements as priority considerations when selecting employees and contractors.
