What is the HUBZone Program and How Can It Benefit Your Small Business?

The HUBZone (Historically Underutilized Business Zone) program is a federal initiative that aims to provide opportunities for small businesses in economically disadvantaged areas. These areas, known as HUBZones, are typically located in rural or inner-city areas and are designated by the Small Business Administration (SBA).

The HUBZone program was created to stimulate economic development and create jobs in these areas by offering a range of benefits to small businesses that operate within a HUBZone. These benefits include:

  • Priority when bidding on federal contracts

  • A 10% price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions

  • A preference for certain subcontracting opportunities

To qualify for the HUBZone program, a small business must meet certain requirements, including:

  • Being located in a HUBZone

  • Having at least 35% of its employees living in a HUBZone

  • Being owned and controlled by U.S. citizens

The HUBZone program is a great opportunity for small businesses looking to grow and expand their operations. Not only does it provide access to federal contracts and subcontracting opportunities, but it also helps stimulate economic development in underserved areas.

If you think your small business might be eligible for the HUBZone program, be sure to visit the SBA website for more information and to apply.
