Under CHA’s Section 3 program, there are multiple requirements for every contract. Hiring and Contracting are both required under Section 3, and vendors cannot choose between the two. Section 3 does not apply to Supply & Delivery contracts. CHA’s Section 3 requirements are outlined in HUD’s 24 CFR 135.
