Help Us Build Support for Legislation
to Improve the HUBZone Program 


Contact Your Elected Representatives Today

 

Two bills have been introduced in Congress, one in the Senate and one in the House of Representatives, that would help improve the HUBZone Program by increasing business certainty for HUBZone-certified companies.  We need your support to maximize the chances to have them approved.

Both bills would extend the current 3-year Redesignation Period to 7 years.  This is the grandfathered time the SBA allows when an area's income and/or employment statistics indicate that the area no longer qualifies as a HUBZone.
 
Three years is just not enough time to allow a HUBZone company to move and hire new employees if its HUBZone status is endangered.  
 
The Council supports this change and believes that it will help more companies remain certified and earn more HUBZone contracts to generate more jobs in emerging areas. Since the HUBZone porfolio of companies is the smallest in many years, it is vital that more companies remain in the program to help it have the economic impact it was designed to have in communities that suffer from low income or high unemployment.
 
We invite all members of the HUBZone community to contact their elected representatives and ask them to cosponsor the following legislation.  If a bill has enough cosponsors, its chances for passage are greatly increased.
 
Either call your Senators and Representatives or send an email to encourage them to support this important legislation.
