Supporting economic equity

Committed to section 3/minority outreach

BGC Advantage is a leader in helping Housing Authorities navigate RAD, HUD, and Rural Development requirements, including Section 3. We are committed to complying with the Section 3 act, regulations, and any relevant partner Housing Authority Section 3 guidelines. We are dedicated to pursuing business relationships with qualified Section 3 participants and providing employment and training to Section 3 residents.

It is our policy and our mission to provide Section 3 participants, as well as Minority, Women-Owned, and Disadvantaged Business enterprises, the maximum opportunity to participate in the performance of contracts financed in whole or in part with federal funds.


We endeavor to:


Choose general contractors and service providers that share our commitment to supporting minority and women-owned businesses by complying with Section 3 hiring practices.


Encourage the participation and support of subcontractor and supplier diversity by prime contractors


Seek qualified Section 3 participants, minority-owned, women-owned, and other small disadvantaged business enterprises that can provide the services needed


Pursue opportunities to assist in the development and competitiveness of the targeted businesses

We work to award contracts for services to Section 3 participants. Our outreach meetings are designed to educate and inform about employment opportunities, contracting, and any applicable training opportunities.

We get the word out:


Hosting educational and informational forums



Emailing flyers and invitations to targeted businesses within
the project community


Posting ads about job opportunities and contracting events
in local periodicals


Posting social media announcements


Distributing flyers through the public housing agency and local organizations that serve minority populations


Hosting meeting recordings on our website, as needed

BGC will work to ensure that employment and economic opportunities generated by certain HUD financial assistance shall, to the greatest extent possible, be directed toward low to very low-income persons and to business concerns, which provide economic opportunities, to low-income persons.
