H­­UD Section 3­­

The AHA utilizes Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 to ensure the provision of employment, training, contracting, and other economic opportunities to its residents and other low-income persons.

Opportunities for Low-Income Individuals

The Section 3 Program helps to link public housing residents, Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8 Rent Assistance) participants, and other low-income individuals in the Aurora area to employment and training opportunities on projects funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). When there is a need for new hires on these projects, AHA and its contractors and subcontractors will make every effort within their disposal to hire Section 3 residents (low-income residents) to the greatest extent feasible
