Ramsey County HRA would like to encourage all low income individuals and businesses that employ low income workers in construction and related service trades to complete Section 3 Certification forms . Note: If you have been certified by one of the other twin cities local governments, you may forward that information to be included on Ramsey County’s list.
Section 3 Certification for Individuals Form
Section 3 Certification for Businesses Form
Section 3 is a part of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 and encourages economic opportunities such as employment, training and education, and contracts and business opportunities be given to low and very low income persons who live in the area where a HUD-assisted project is located.
Although local governments in the Greater MSP area are working to develop a region-wide certification process, until that happens we are creating lists of eligible businesses and workers independently. The Ramsey County HRA will be using its list to primarily support construction activity in suburban Ramsey County communities including single family housing rehabilitation, new multi-family housing construction or other construction where federal funds are used.
Section 3 workers and businesses will be notified when opportunities arise.
