Self-Sufficiency, Employment and Training Opportunities
Jobs for residents of HSHA communities, created through the Section 3 program are just one component of a successful resident employment initiative at HSHA. Section 3 applies only to new hires, and the majority of the contracting jobs created as a result of Section 3 are construction-related and thus not long term at any one site. Therefore, to maximize the benefits of its Section 3 program, HSHA will employ the following techniques:
Utilize the Section 3 Program as only one of several opportunities to provide jobs for residents that are successful participants in its self-sufficiency programs.
Provide supportive services to help ensure the success of residents employed as a result of the provisions of Section 3.
