United States Department of Housing and Urban Development


The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development,
also known as HUD, is a Cabinet department in the Executive
branch of the United States federal government. Although its
beginnings were in the House and Home Financing Agency, it was
founded as a Cabinet department in 1965, as part of the "Great
Society" program of President Lyndon Johnson, to develop and
execute policies on housing and metropolises.



Mission


HUDís mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive
communities and quality affordable homes for all. HUD is
working to strengthen the housing market to bolster the
economy and protect consumers; meet the need for quality
affordable rental homes: utilize housing as a platform for
improving quality of life; build inclusive and sustainable
communities free from discrimination; and transform the
way HUD does business.

The Section 3 program requires that recipients of
certain HUD financial assistance, to the greatest
extent possible, provide job training, employment,
and contract opportunities for low- or very-low
income residents in connection with projects and
activities in their neighborhoods.

If you live in government-assisted housing or if
your household income falls below HUD's income
limits, you may qualify as a Section 3 resident
or Section 3 business concern.

Section 3 helps low-income residents get the skills
and jobs needed to become self-sufficient.

Section 3 also provides opportunities for qualified,
low-income business owners to receive preference in
bidding on HUD-funded contracts.

8(a)
BUSINESS
DEVELOPMENT
PROGRAM




SBA's 8(a) Business Development Program offers
a broad scope of assistance to socially and
economically disadvantaged firms; it was created
to help eligible small disadvantaged businesses
become independently competitive in the federal
procurement market.

A firm must be 51% owned and controlled by a socially
and economically disadvantaged individual or individuals
to be eligible for the 8(a) Program;

8(a) firms automatically qualify for SDB certification.
Unlike the SDB Program, 8(a) applicants must generally
be in business for at least two years before applying.
The SBA must certify small businesses that want to
claim 8(a) status.


Program participation is divided into two stages:


The developmental stage

The transitional stage.



The developmental stage is four years and the
transitional stage is five years. The developmental
stage is designed to help 8(a) certified firms
overcome their economic disadvantage by providing
business development assistance.


The transitional stage is designed to help participants
overcome the remaining elements of economic disadvantage
and to prepare participants for leaving the 8(a) Program.
