HUBZone PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Contracting Program encourages small businesses to locate in and hire employees from economically disadvantaged areas of the United States. Companies participating in the program can receive competitive advantages in winning federal contracts. The HUBZone Empowerment Act was enacted into law as part of the Small Business Reauthorization Act of 1997 under PL 105-135 with the legislative sponsorship of Senator Christopher S. “Kit” Bond.
