What are next steps if I am a Section 3 Resident?
All candidates applying for employment with the MPHA should complete a job application online and send us the Section 3 Resident Certification for Employment form along with the documented evidence to be considered for an interview. Please note, we do not guarantee an interview but Section 3 residents will be considered if the minimums are met.
To qualify as a certified Section 3 resident, an applicant must send us documented evidence along with the Section 3 Resident Certification for Employment form when applying for the job. Public housing residents need only show proof of residency in MPHA. Other residents of the Section 3 area need to show proof of residency within the 13-county Twin Cities Metro Area which includes Anoka, Carver, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Scott, Sherburne, Washington and Wright Counties in Minnesota and Pierce and St. Croix Counties in Wisconsin; and documented proof of meeting the income requirements.
Section 3 is both race and gender neutral. Preferences provided under this regulation are based on income-level and location. Section 3 residents must demonstrate that they meet the minimum qualifications for the employment opportunities offered.
