Hud Act of 1968: Section 3

What is Section 3? 

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development provides financial assitance to certiain areas in order to promote local economic development, neighborhood economic improvement, and individual self-sufficiency.  Section 3 is the law that says that areas where HUD provides this assistance are to provide jobs for the residents and contracts to the local businesses. 

What does that mean for you?

Our goal is to encourage the city of East Orange to act in compliance with this federal law and create more oppurtunities for our community. The easiest way to transition to being in full compliance is by creating an accurate list of East Orange residents who are contractors and a list residents who are not yet certified but are interested in leraning a trade. The city will be able to refer to that list when it is time for community projects and development We can also work with those unskilled participants to help them access oppurtunities. Come out to our event in May to find out more, add yourself to that list and make our community a better place!
