Section 3

What is Section 3? Section 3 is a provision of the HUD Act of 1968 that helps foster local economic development, neighborhood economic improvement, and individual self-sufficiency. It requires that recipients of certain federal grants, to the greatest extent feasible, provide job-training, employment, and contracting opportunities for low- or very-low income residents. 24 CFR Part 135 establishes the standards and procedure to be followed in order to ensure that the requirements of Section 3 are met.

The City of College Station is committed to ensuring that employment, training, and other economic opportunities are made available through programs carried out with funds from the federal government through the implementation of the Section 3 program. Contracts awarded for construction utilizing federal resources will, to the greatest extent feasible, require contractors to provide equal employment opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, veteran's or familial status, or economic status and to take affirmative action to ensure that both job applicants and existing employees are given fair and equal treatment.

The City implements this Section 3 policy through the awarding of contracts to contractors in an effort to create employment and business opportunities for the lower income residents and business concerns of the College Station-Bryan MSA.
