What is it?
The Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Empowerment Contracting Program is designed to stimulate economic development and create jobs in urban and rural communities by providing federal contracting preferences to small businesses. These businesses obtain HUBZone certification in part by (1) being located in a geographical area, known as a HUBZone, which the US Dept of Labor has designated as a qualifying location; and (2) employing staff, workers or temp service employees who also live in a HUBZone. HUBZone certified businesses realize many benefits.
