ABOUT US

The HUBZone Council is a 501(c)(6) non-profit  trade association comprised of a group of companies and organizations working together to improve and support the HUBZone program and small business community. 

WHY WE ADVOCATE

Across this great Nation there are thousands communities and millions of Americans suffering from lack of investment. In 1997 Senator Kit Bond sponsored the bill  that passed the SBA HUBZone Program into law with the hope that it would promote job growth, capital investment, and economic development within these underdeveloped communities. However, despite its many promises, companies that have invested heavily into relocating or staffing their businesses it remains the only small business program that has never met the statutory goal. The HUBZone Contractors National Council was established in 2000 by a group of individuals that believed in this programs mission and were willing to STAND UP for it. 

RECENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS 

In 2017, the HUBZone Council and its Advocacy team played an instrumental role in achieving HUBZone Program reforms under the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The changes implemented under the NDAA provided business certainty for thousands of small business across the nation.  The comprehensive reform of this (SBA) program provides small businesses with greater economic certainty, facilitates timely communication between HUBZone firms and the SBA, and expands the program to revitalize even more of our nations's emerging communities. 







OUR FOCUS 

Legislative Reform 

Programs bound by regulatory and statutory requirements are only as effective as the laws that bind it. The Council has been working closely with Congressional representatives  on program refinements. 

Increase HUBZone Spending

Since the government has never met its HUBZone goal of 3%, the HUBZone council is dedicated to fighting for better acquisition practices to maximize the ability to compete not limit them.  The HUBZone Council supports the expansion of sole sourcing as a means to met small business goals  

Economic & Community Development 

To many of the members of our organization the HUBZone program is more than a federal contracting program, it is a means to facilitate job creation and economic growth within those communities that need it the most.
