H is for…Hub-Zone

All federal agencies have procurement goals for contracting with certain categories of small businesses, including Veteran-owned, Women-owned, Disadvantaged/Minority-owned, and businesses located in Historically Under-Utilized Business Zones, or HUB-Zones.

In order to qualify, a small business must have its principal office located in a HUB-Zone; must be owned and controlled by a US Citizen; and at least 35% of its employees must live in a HUB-Zone area.
