Section 3 and Resident Hiring
The Section 3 law requires developers and contractors receiving certain federal funds for construction contracts to use their best efforts to hire Section 3 residents as 30% of new hires and to subcontract 10% of the contract value to Section 3 business concerns (or to subcontract 3% of the value of non-construction contracts to Section 3 business concerns).
