The Council of the District of Columbia announced a proclamation as a result of the work of the DC Limited Equity Cooperative Task Force, of which Hugh Jeffers (NAHC Chair of the Development and Preservation Committee) and Vernon Oakes (NAHC Past President) are contributing parties. NAHC was represented in testimony this summer before Councilwoman Anita Bonds, by Gregory J. Carlson (NAHC Chairman), Fred K. Gibbs (NAHC President) and Judy Sullivan (NAHC Government Relations Representative). NAHC representatives spoke in support of the work of this Task Force. NAHC is very proud of this huge acknowledgment by our nation’s capital that promotes and affirms that housing cooperatives are an answer to the affordable housing crisis facing our nation.

Stakeholder Community,

We are excited to invite you to our April Stakeholder HUDdle where we will discuss HUD’s newly proposed Section 3 rule and HUD can help low-income individuals achieve self-sufficiency.

This past Wednesday, HUD published a proposed rule to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968. Section 3 requires employment, training, contracting, and other economic opportunities generated by certain HUD financial assistance to be directed to the greatest extent feasible to low- and very low-income persons, especially recipients of government assistance for housing, and to businesses that provide economic opportunities to low- and very low-income persons. See the proposed rule here.

Please join us to hear remarks from Secretary Carson, insights from public housing authorities and policy experts.
