What is the Davis-Bacon Act?

Established under the 1931 Davis-Bacon Act, some public works projects must pay workers the local prevailing wages— not simply the minimum wage. Required by many HUD programs, it is overseen by HUD’s Office of Labor Relations Davis-Bacon compliance. Fortunately for borrowers, HUD 223(f) loans typically do not require that workers be paid Davis-Bacon wages for any rennovation or repair work.
