Federal Government Benefits for Small Business Owners and Employees

March 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Federal Government Benefits for Small Business Owners and Employees

…Learn how Section 3 provides incentives and tax benefits to business owners and/or employees,
and contributes to the establishment of stronger, more sustainable communities.

This event is designed to educate attendees on the various incentives and benefits of Section 3 of HUD  (Housing and Urban Development). This is NOT your typical government event – it is filled with solid information and resources for attendees.

An overview will be provided on:

  • Incentives for Business Owners
  • Incentives for Employees
  • Revenue Opportunities for Low-to-Moderate Income Businesses
  • Section 3 Opportunity Portal (and how to become self-certified and listed)
  • What are Opportunity Zones (and how do they benefit businesses and communities?)
  • The Role of Local Government and Municipalities

Who Should Attend?

  • Business Owners – learn the benefits and incentives in hiring low-income employees
  • Low-Income Business Owners – those whose income is considered low for the purpose of self-certification opportunities and benefits, whose business can then be added to the portal for government contracts
  • Government Contractors – those looking to provide awards to low-income business owners and learn to use the portal of self-certified low-income business owners
  • Awardees of Government Contracts – business owners who have received government contracts and want to provide sub-contract opportunities to those from the low-income portal
  • Local government and municipalities – your important role in supporting this program with local businesses and residents

This event is completely free to the public and registration is required from this site. There will be a good number of business resources and local government present at the event with information relevant and complimentary to the purpose of this initiative.  For specific information on Section 3 you can email Phyllis Hargrove at phyllis.a.hargrove@hud.gov.
