Connect with HUD Entities Required to Meet Section 3

As an under-resourced, utilized small business, we know you want to be a business that grows, and everyone knows. In order to do that, you need to increase sales and performance. The problem is you can’t seem to access the right contracts and opportunities you need to grow your business and gain performance, and this makes you wonder if starting your small business is even worth it.

We believe that regardless of income, everyone deserves a fair shot!

As small business owners ourselves we understand what it means to start something from nothing but an idea, which is why we created this platform–the Section 3 Marketplace! The only 3D virtual interactive platform designed and dedicated to connecting your small business to HUD financially assisted entities required to meet Section 3 federal requirements.

Your Business Doesn’t Have to Struggle in Isolation Anymore–We Can Help!
1. Secure Your Presence

Make your company’s brand known to HUD financially assisted entities required to meet the Section 3 mandate.

2. Approve Your Storefront Design

Our design team will build your storefront using your website’s (required) colors, images and themes.

3. Connect, Collaborate and Create

Connect and access the opportunities in collaboration with other small businesses. Find what your business needs to create that edge!
