This registry is in place for those businesses that have reviewed the definitions and qualifications of a Section 3 Business Concern, per 24 CFR 135.5 and meet the criteria for self-certification as a Section 3 Business Concern. If you do not meet the qualifications for self-certification as a Section 3 Business Concern, please do not proceed with the registration and self-certification process.
