The purpose of Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 is to ensure that employment and other economic opportunities generated by certain types of activities undertaken by DCHA with HUD funding are, to “the greatest extent feasible,” directed to:

1) low and very low income persons, particularly public housing residents and Housing Choice Voucher Program participants; and

2) business concerns which provide economic opportunities to such persons.
