Improve Section 3 Best Efforts Compliance and Numerical Goals

As a HUD financially assisted entity, we know you want to be a high performing industry leader who creates win/wins for the cities and families you serve. In order to do this, you must improve Section 3 best efforts compliance and numerical goals. The problem is there is not enough dedicated staff and resources to mange and diligently comply with the complicated regulation and this makes you feel frustrated, overwhelmed and sometimes rushed to check a box, or file a report.

We believe working for or contracting with the federal government is already difficult enough. And as hard as you work, you deserve numbers and outcomes that speak to your time, skill and competency.

As the only national public housing resident's association to ever do business with HUD, we have provided more than $600,000 in Section 3 contracts, launched more than 75 Section 3 businesses, and have dedicated more than half a million dollars in training.

Compliance Doesn’t Have To Be Complex, We Can Help:
  • Are you sending out last-minute email blasts to HUD’s section 3 registered businesses just to check a greatest extent feasible box?
  • Are you fudging numbers on federal documents, jeopardizing everything you work so hard for?
  • Are you reporting zero outcomes in training, employment and contracting every single year?
In 3 Easy Steps, You Can Achieve Best Efforts and Numerical Goals!
1. Choose Your Partnership Level

Partnership opportunities are available for private, public, and section 3 business concerns.

2. Upload RFPs to Your Expo Booth
