What is a HUBZone and Do I Qualify for the HUBZone Program?
The Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) program helps small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities. The federal government has a goal of awarding at least 3% of all dollars for federal prime contracts to HUBZone certified companies. Agencies may set-aside contracts for which only HUBZone companies are allowed to bid, or they may award sole-source contracts to HUBZone firms in an effort to meet that goal. HUBZone-certified contractors may also be eligible for a 10% price evaluation preference in some cases of full and open contract competitions and subcontracting opportunities.
