PCHA is committed to compliance with Section 3 requirements.  Section 3 is applicable to all projects and activities funded, in part or in whole, with PCHAs federal funds.  Section 3 benefits low income and very-low income residents of Pinellas County.  Residents and businesses that qualify as a Section 3 resident or business concern may receive preferences in hiring, training and contracting opportunities when available.
