Section 3 is a program that works to train and employ low-income D.C. residents with contractors with DCHA. DCHA Executive Director Tyrone Garrett stresses the importance of DCHA employment and self-sufficiency programs. The DCHA team has increased participation and success rates by nearly 150 percent in the Section 3 employment program and a 70 percent increase in job training and professional development, creating new opportunities and bright futures for D.C. residents since fiscal 2015.

In addition, Field Office Director Marvin Turner tweeted, "Thanks (D.C. Housing) for your great work on Section3. Your results have been noticed throughout (HUD Region 3) in this video by @JoeDeFeliceHUD. Keep up the great work!" (read here)
