The Section 3 Business Registry is a listing of firms that have self-certified that they meet one of the regulatory definitions of a Section 3 business and are included in a searchable online database that can be used by agencies that receive HUD funds, developers, contractors, and others to facilitate the award of certain HUD-funded contracts. The database can also be used by Section 3 residents to identify businesses that may have HUD-funded employment opportunities.This registry is a helpful tool to assistant recipients of HUD funding (e.g., Public Housing Agencies, local units of government, property owners, etc.), developers, and others locate Section 3 businesses within their community. It also enables HUD grantees to meet their Section 3 obligations by reducing some of the burden associated with locating eligible businesses.
