Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 (12 U.S.C. 1701u), as amended, and the implementing regulation at 24 CFR part 135 ensures that employment, training, and contracting 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 to low- and very low income persons, particularly those who are recipients of government assistance for housing, and to businesses that provide economic opportunities to low- and very low-income persons.
The Department published the Section 3 Coordination and Implementation Notice of Funding Availability (Section 3 NOFA) on June 7, 2011 announcing the availability of approximately $600,000 out of the Department's FY 2010 appropriation, to be utilized to help agencies that receive covered HUD funding build their capacity to meet the regulatory requirements of Section 3 by providing funds for the salary, fringe benefits, and other expenses associated with hiring one full-time Section 3 Coordinator for one year. Funding availability for discretionary grants included: Approximately 12 qualified applicants to receive awards of $50,000 via a lottery by region. Accordingly, HUD was able to fund at least one application within each of its ten regional offices. This Notice announces grant awards of approximately $600,000 to 12 grantees.
For the FY 2010 NOFA, the Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the FY 2010 NOFA. As a result, HUD has funded the applications announced in Appendix A, and in accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is hereby publishing details concerning the recipients of funding awards in Appendix A.
