Section 3 Job Openings

The purpose of Section 3 of the HUD Act of 1968, ensures that employment and other economic opportunities be directed, to the greatest extent possible, to low and very-low income individuals. Section 3 requirements apply to all contractors and subcontractors working on projects funded by public housing assistance. NWGHA residents who are interested in being certified and made ready as a Section 3 employee must complete the "Section 3: Eligibility for Preference Application." ​It is available at each Property Manager's office, or it can be printed off using the link below. NWGHA residents are automatically qualified as Section 3 residents, but would still need to complete this required form. In addition to NWGHA residents, individuals who live in Rome, Georgia and Rockmart, Georgia and whose income falls within the guidelines for low or very low income may also qualify as a Section 3 resident. After filling out the required form, interested individuals should check NWGHA job openings to obtain information about possible employment opportunities made available through the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
