HUD contacting agencies to document low-income hiring

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has launched a campaign to “increase hiring of low-income individuals and public housing residents by state and local governments that receive HUD funds,” according to a department news release.  HUD is contacting more than 3,000 state and local agencies, including public housing authorities, to document their efforts to hire low-income individuals and to contract with companies who hire them, the release says. Agencies that fail to comply may be debarred, suspended or denied participation in HUD programs, according to the release.  Information: www.hud.gov/section3
