What is the HUBZone Small Business Contractor Program?
The Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) small business contractor program promotes economic development in small businesses located in urban and rural communities throughout the US by providing access to more Federal government contracting opportunities. The program was enacted into law as part of the Small Business Reauthorization Act of 1997 and is operated by the Small Business Administration (SBA). Three percent of all Federal prime contract dollars are targeted to HUBZone-certified businesses. Companies are required to be a small business by SBA standards, be owned and controlled at least 51% by U.S. citizens, located within a HUBZone area, and at least 35% of the company’s employees have to reside in a HUBZone.
