  1. Including such firms, when qualified, on solicitation mailing lists.
2. Encouraging their participation through direct solicitation of bids or proposals whenever they are potential sources.
3. Dividing total requirements, when economically feasible, into smaller tasks or quantities to permit maximum participation by such firms.
4. Establishing delivery schedules, where the requirement permits, which encourage participation by such firms.
5. Using the services and assistance of the Small Business Administration, and the Minority Business Development Agency of the Department of Commerce.
6. Including in contracts a clause requiring contractors, to the greatest extent feasible, to provide opportunities for training and employment for lower income residents of the project area and to award subcontracts for work in connection with the project to business concerns which are or owned in substantial part by section 3 persons, as described in 24 CFR 135.
7. Requiring prime contractors, when subcontracting is anticipated, to take the positive steps listed above.
8. Allowing preference percentages up to 10% depending on the contract amount for Section 3 businesses.
9. Goals may be established by HANH periodically for participation by small businesses, minority-owned businesses enterprises, women's business enterprises, labor surplus area businesses, and business concerns which are owned in substantial part by persons of low or very low income, in HANH's prime contracts and subcontracting opportunities.
