Careers in Construction

As NYCHA continues to break ground on major recovery projects across New York City, NYCHA is working to strengthen pathways to careers and economic opportunity for residents. To date, hundreds of low-income New Yorkers have been employed through Section 3 on Sandy-related contracts at NYCHA developments, and more than half are NYCHA residents. To supplement existing programs, NYCHA is awarding three pre-apprenticeship training and placement program providers to connect NYCHA residents to promising careers in the construction industry. Providers connect residents to job training and direct entry into skilled trade unions working on Sandy construction projects at NYCHA developments. The programs will be funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program.

Residents interested in connecting immediately to training and employment opportunities can contact NYCHA’s Office of Resident Economic Empowerment & Sustainability (REES) online or via telephone at (718)-289-8100.

Note: Section 3 is a federal mandate that requires employment and other economic opportunities generated by federal assistance to public housing authorities be directed, whenever possible, to public housing residents and other low- and very-low-income individuals.
