Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968 is HUD’s legislative directive for providing preference to our Public Housing and Section 8 program participants followed by other low and very-low-income residents of the community when employment or training opportunities are triggered within the MHA or by the Medford Housing Authority and/or contractors who work directly with the MHA.

The Medford Housing Authority (MHA) seeks to establish a Job Skills and Training Database for Public Housing and Section 8 participants.  The MHA will offer employment opportunities to qualified program participants when positions are available at the authority and will provide our contractors with information/resumes when contractors have training or employment opportunities.  

The MHA is seeking your interest to be considered for possible employment and/or training opportunities.  You are not required to participate in the Section 3 Program.  We are however requesting you complete a Section 3 Assessment Form and return it to the MHA with your package as this will enable us to know who we should or should not contact for employment and training opportunities.

The MHA has partnered with MassHire Metro North Workforce Board where job seekers can obtain employment information, find out about career development training opportunities and connect to various programs in their area. 

If you have any questions or would like more information in this regard or assistance with the form, please contact the Medford Housing Authority at 781 396 7200.  If you require an assessment form for you or a member of your family household, we will provide the form to you.  If you do not reach us personally by phone, please leave a message with your name, address and phone number and we will return your call.
