DCHA MENU

DCHA itself and every DCHA Contractor and Subcontractor is required by HUD regulations (24 CFR Section 135.30) to award contracts “to the greatest extent feasible.”

The regulations set a safe harbor for compliance with this standard as follows:

a) For contracts for building trades work for maintenance, repair, modernization or development the safe harbor is awards of contracts of at least 10% of the total dollar amount of contracts or subcontracts.

b) For all other covered contracts the safe harbor is awards of contracts of at least 3% of the total dollar amount of contracts or subcontracts.

Section 3 does not apply to the purchase and delivery of supplies and materials.
