Self Certification

By Submitting this form, my business certifies that the statements and information contained on this form are true and accurate, and meet the required HUD Section 3 business self-certification eligibility requirements in accordance with 24 CFR Part 135. HUD accepts the firm's self-certification that it meets the requirements of a Section 3 Business, but has not validated this claim or substantiated its validity. HUD does not endorse the services provided by any firms that apply for self-certification. A Section 3 business is not entitled to a contract simply by being listed in the HUD Section 3 Business Registry database. Businesses that self-certify their eligibility may receive preference as a Section 3 business, subject to verification from local recipient agencies or HUD. Information that is misrepresented on this form will be grounds for terminating Section 3 certification, or any contract(s) that may be awarded. Firms that misrepresent their eligibility to receive preference as a Section 3 business may face financial or criminal penalties.
