HUD Section 3 Rule finalized after 26 years
HUD has announced a final rule [85 FR 61524] implementing the “Section 3” statute. Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 (as amended) requires that recipients of certain HUD funds make economic opportunities available for low- and very low-income individuals, especially recipients of government assistance for housing, living in the areas where HUD funds are spent. An “interim rule” has been in effect since 1994. The final rule is designed to improve a focus on economic opportunity outcomes while simultaneously reducing the regulatory burden on those entities that receive those funds.
The rule will become effective November 30, 2020. Public housing financial assistance recipients must implement their Section 3 activities pursuant to these regulations and comply with the reporting requirements starting with the recipient's first full fiscal year after July 1, 2021. These regulations are applicable to Section 3 projects for which assistance or funds are committed on or after July 1, 2021. Published with the rule were Section 3 benchmarks [85 FR 60907].
