Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Program

Urban or rural road sign

The purpose of the Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Program is to provide Federal contracting assistance for qualified Small Business concerns located in HUBZones to:

  • Increase employment opportunities
  • Stimulate capital investment in those areas
  • Empower communities through economic leveraging and reinvestment within the community of wages and taxes

To be a qualified HUBZone Small Business concern a company must:

  • Be a Small Business
  • Be 51% owned and controlled only by U.S. citizens
  • Have the “principal office” located in a HUBZone
  • Have at least 35% of the company’s employees residing in a HUBZone (doesn’t have to be the same HUBZone as the company’s principal office)
  • Be certified by the U.S. Small Business Administration

Additional information may be found at the Small Business Administration’s HUBZone web site.
