The Small Business Administration’s “HUBZone” or “Historically Underutilized Business Zone program” provides special assistance to businesses within these defined zones, usually around Native American Reservations and military bases.
To find out if you business falls within one of the HUBZones, take a look at the HUBZone Maps at the SBA.
To qualify, it is also required that
- It must be a small business by SBA standards;
- It must be owned and controlled at least 51% by U.S. citizens, or a Community Development Corporation, an agricultural cooperative, or an Indian tribe;
- Its principal office must be located within a “Historically Underutilized Business Zone,” which includes lands considered “Indian Country” and military facilities closed by the Base Realignment and Closure Act; and
- At least 35% of its employees must reside in a HUBZone.
If you require special assistance or have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org !
