what is HUBZone certification?
The federal government tries to award at least three percent of all federal contracting dollars to HUBZone-certified small businesses each year.
The government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses in historically underutilized business zones. It also gives preferential consideration to those businesses in full and open competition. Joining the HUBZone program makes your business eligible to compete for the program's set-aside contracts. HUBZone-certified businesses also get a 10 percent price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions
can my business get HUBZone certification?
Most set-asides involve attributes of the business principles, but the HUBZone set-aside applies more to the location of principle office of a business.
To qualify for the HUBZone program, follow this eligibility checklist:
- Be a small business
- Be at least 51 percent owned and controlled by U.S. citizens, a Community Development Corporation, an agricultural cooperative, a Native Hawaiian organization, or an Indian tribe
- Have its principal office located in a HUBZone
- Have at least 35 percent of its employees live in a HUBZone
