Minority Assistance

Required Efforts

Consistent with Executive Orders 11625, 12138, and 12432, and Section 3 of the HUD Act of 1968, the Authority shall make efforts to ensure that small and minority-owned businesses, women-owned business enterprises, labor surplus area businesses, and individuals or firms located in or owned in substantial part by persons residing in the area of an Authority development are used when possible.


The Board has established the goal of a 10% aggregate involvement of bona-fide minority-owned businesses and women-owned business enterprises in construction contracts and procurement activities. The Authority staff will provide documentation of the outreach efforts to meet the goal in the file for each contract procurement.


The Boards goal is that contractors and vendors doing business with the Housing Authority reflect the diversity of the residents. For each procurement, maximum outreach will be made into the women and minority business community. When appropriate, proposal evaluations will provide additional consideration for offerors providing a higher level of women or minority owned business participation or a higher level of resident employment.
