The SBA’s Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Zone program helps small businesses in economically distressed communities.
The federal government has a mandated contracting goal to award 3% of federal contracts to HUBZone firms. In FY 2012, HUBZone firms received $8.01 billion in federal contracts.
The SBA will conduct two free webinars on Dec 3rd and 17th to explain the program, including the certification process; joint ventures; competing for contracts; compliance; and more.
The webinars are free, but registration is required.
