Federal HUBZone Overview

hubzone logo with the words

Are you in a Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Zone? Learn how to find out and what it means if you want to sell your product or service to the U. S. Government.

The HUBZone program fuels the growth of small businesses in historically underutilized business zones by providing certification for preferential access to federal contracts. The federal government has a goal to award at least three percent of all federal contracting dollars to HUBZone-certified small businesses each year. HUBZones provide an opportunity for federal contracting assistance to qualified small business concerns located in historically underutilized business zones. They represent an effort to increase employment opportunities, investment, and economic development in these designated areas.

In this workshop we will discuss:

  • Purpose
  • Eligibility
  • Early Engagement Initiative (EEI)
  • HUBZone Help
