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 is 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. citizen, located within a HUBZone area, and at least 35% of the company’s employees have to reside in a HUBZone.

- Competitive HUBZone Set-Aside Contract: can be awarded if the contracting officer has a reasonable expectation that at least two responsible HUBZone small businesses will submit offers and that the resulting contract can be awarded at a fair market price.
- Sole Source HUBZone Contract: can be awarded if the contracting officer does not have a reasonable expectation that two or more qualified HUBZone small businesses will submit offers, determines that the qualified HUBZone small business is responsible, and determines that the contract can be awarded at a fair price. The government estimate cannot exceed $5.5 million for manufacturing requirements or $3.5 million for all other requirements.
- Full and Open Competition Contract: can be awarded with a price evaluation preference for HUBZone firms.
