HUBZone Business: Maximizing Growth Potential

A HUBZone certification can propel your business forward, granting you access to federal contracts, competitive advantages, and valuable support, while making a positive impact in economically distressed communities.

Being a HUBZone (Historically Underutilized Business Zone) business can offer several advantages, including:

  • Access to Federal Contracts: HUBZone certification provides eligibility for federal government contracts specifically designated for HUBZone businesses. This can open up opportunities to secure contracts that are set aside exclusively for HUBZone companies.
  • Competitive Edge: As a HUBZone business, you may have a competitive advantage in the federal contracting arena. Government agencies are encouraged to award a certain percentage of their contracts to HUBZone businesses, which can give you an edge over competitors.
  • Set-Asides and Sole-Source Contracts: HUBZone businesses may benefit from set-aside contracts, where a portion of government contracts are exclusively reserved for HUBZone firms. Additionally, in certain cases, agencies can award sole-source contracts directly to HUBZone businesses, streamlining the procurement process.
  • Subcontracting Opportunities: Large government contractors are often required to subcontract a portion of their work to HUBZone businesses to meet specific contract requirements. This can create subcontracting opportunities for HUBZone firms to collaborate with larger companies and gain valuable experience and exposure.

It’s important to note that HUBZone certification requires meeting specific criteria, such as maintaining a principal office located in a designated HUBZone, employing a certain percentage of employees who reside in HUBZones, and ensuring at least 35% of your employees are HUBZone residents. To fully understand the advantages and requirements, it is advisable to consult with the SBA or a HUBZone specialist like Frank Bennett.
