Section 3 Employment Opportunities
GJA has operated a comprehensive Section 3/Construction Program for nineteen years. Section 3 provides construction training and employment opportunities in construction and related fields to residents who are the most impacted by housing development in their communities. The program is designed to:
- Provide employment opportunities and/or construction theory and actual hands on demonstration so that residents/individuals can learn the skills of carpentry, plumbing, drywall, electrical wiring, plumbing, and other aspects of construction training required to compete for entry-level construction related jobs and formal apprenticeships;
- Provide general contractors with residents/individuals to fill Section 3 employment requirements.
GJA adheres to HUD Section 3 purpose to ensure that employment and other economic opportunities generated by HUD assistance or HUD-assisted projects covered by section 3, to the greatest extent feasible, be directed to low-and very low-income persons, particularly persons who are recipients of HUD assistance for housing.
