TO ALL PROSPECTIVE BIDDERS:
The following question was submitted by a potential bidder. Our answer is listed below
in red:
Question: Does Shelby County have a list of approved Section 3 consultants? If so,
can that list be shared?
Answer:
Yes. Check both HUD’s site and Shelby County Dept. of Housing’s web
page.
HUD’s link: https://portalapps.hud.gov/Sec3BusReg/BRegistry/What
The Shelby County Section 3 Website link is:
http://www.shelbycountytn.gov/3277/Section-3-Information and the local
list can be viewed by clicking on the “VIEW” link under Contracting
Obligations
For clarification purposes:
The 3 bullets below define what qualifies businesses as Section 3 contractors and it all hinges on the
word “or”, a Section 3 business can qualify under 1 of the 3 definitions. Please see the highlight below:
Contracting Obligations: Applies to CDBG Projects
Applies to projects valued at $100,000 or more
Section 3 requires that award recipients fulfill the following obligations:
Show commitment to meet HUD’s contracting requirement (the “minimum numerical target for
contracting”) that Section 3 businesses receive at least 10% of the building trades contracts for the
project, and at least 3% of the total amount for all non-building trade contracts.
“To the greatest extent feasible” contract with Section 3 business concerns identified as
o 51 percent or more owned by Section 3 residents; or
o At least 30 percent of its full-time employees include persons that are currently Section 3
residents, or were Section 3 residents within 3 years of the dated of first hire; or
o Provides evidence, as required, of a commitment to subcontract in excess of 25 percent (25%)
of the dollar award of all subcontracts to businesses that meet one of the qualifications above.
