Section 3 is a provision of the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Act of 1968, which recognizes that HUD funds are typically one of the largest sources of federal funding expended in communities, including those communities served by the Agency. Section 3 is intended to ensure that when a contractor has need to hire additional people as the result of receiving a contract from the EHA, preference must be given to low- and very low-income persons residing in Evansville, IN (Section 3 resident), or Section 3 business concerns.

The requirements pertaining to Section 3 apply only to purchases and contracts the EHA completes for work, the requirements of Section 3 DOES NOT apply to purchases or contracts the EHA completes solely for commodities or equipment; meaning, “no work provided, no Section 3 required.

Section 3 is race and gender neutral in that preferences are based on income-level and location.
