The SBA's HUBZone program provides incentives for government agencies to purchase goods and services
from historically distressed areas and Indian areas. The government's goal is to have 3% of all purchases come from HUBZones
(23% of all purchases are to come from small business as a whole).
Businesses must apply to be HUB-zone certified and must comply with the following:
Go to http://map0.sba.gov:82/gis/esri/hubzone/index.html and enter your city to see if there are any areas designated as HUBZones. It is easiest to use the Address-Town-County Search, rather than the map, because the map only shows the larger HUB areas.If you are locating in a HUBZone, go to https://eweb1sp.sba.gov/hubzone/internet/index.cfm for more information and click on "HUBZone Electronic Application" to apply.
