HUD Economic Opportunity Summit

HUD’s Section 3 program requires that entities receiving federal funds make their best effort to train and hire low-income residents and contractors from the area where the funds are being used.

Following this mandate, the HUD San Juan Field Office partnered with the P.R. Department of Housing, the P.R. Builders Association, and the

P.R. Association of General Contractors to convey a Section 3 HUD Economic Opportunity Summit held at the Puerto Rico Convention Center.

Message from the San Juan Field Office:
