Section 3 Plans

Section 3 Plans are submitted by Subrecipients and Grantees (for both housing and non-housing). The Land Office does not approve individual plans, each plan is reviewed to assess how many of the Best Practices from the GLO Section 3 Policy are included. This is done to assist other entities wishing to utilize the plans posted as a resource. A higher or lower number of Best Practices may or may not be an indication of how successful a community will be with meeting the Section 3 numerical goals.
