Senior HUD Official to Join Monday’s (12/4) “Tenant Talk Live” on Section 3

NLIHC will host the next session of “Tenant Talk Live” – a meeting geared towards tenant and resident leaders – on Monday, December 4, at 6 pm ET. The meeting will focus on Section 3, a statute that obligates HUD housing and community development funding to benefit low-income residents and community members. NLIHC staff will be joined by Michele Perez, assistant deputy secretary of HUD’s Office of Field Policy and Management. Register for next Monday’s Tenant Talk Live meeting here.

Section 3 is a federal obligation tied to a significant portion of HUD funding. The Section 3 statute states that recipients of HUD housing and community development funding must provide, “to the greatest extent feasible,” job training, employment, and contracting opportunities for low-income and very low-income residents, “particularly those who are recipients of government assistance for housing.” For more detailed information on Section 3 and its associated regulations, refer to NLIHC’s 2023 Advocates’ Guide article on Section 3.

Tenant Talk Live meetings are held the first and third Monday of every month at 6 pm ET. For information on future topics, view our website: To stay up to date on Tenant Talk Live events and connect with other attendees, join the Tenant Talk Facebook group.
