The HUBZone Program was enacted into law as part of the Small Business Reauthorization Act of 1997 under PL 105-135 under the legislative sponsorship of Senator Christopher S. “Kit” Bond . The program was introduced as a jobs bill with the primary objectives of job creation and increased capital investment in distressed communities throughout rural and urban America. HUBZone is unlike any other Small Business Program, its main focus is on the development of a community rather than an individual. The HUBZone Council was established by a group of individuals who believed in the mission of this program and were willing to FIGHT for it.
There are two types of people; those who watch things happen and THOSE WHO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!
HUBZone Council Committees
HUBZone Council members are invited to participate as committee volunteers to help support the Council's mission while enhancing their involvement and leadership opportunities. In addition to opportunities for contributing ideas and expertise, committee members can enhance their networking effectiveness with other members.
Economic Development Committee
The HUBZone Program is more than a Federal Contacting program, it was meant to facilitate job creation and economic growth within those communities who need it most.
Join the Economic Development Committee and contribute to the development of America's most economically challenged communities by promoting job creation and community outreach.
Each one of us can make a difference. Together we can make a change.- Barbara Mikulski
Government Affairs Committee
As a program bound by regulatory and statutory requirements, the effectiveness of a program is heavily dependent on the laws that bind it. The HUBZone Council has been working with Congress and the Administration to modernize and expand the HUBZone Program.
Join the Government Affairs Committee and help monitor public policy and advocate for legislative changes to modernize and improve the HUBZone Program.
Don't expect to see a change if you don't make one- Be the voice behind the Change.
Business Development Committee
Since the government has never met its HUBZone goal of 3%, the Council is dedicated to fighting for government acquisition practices that maximize our ability to compete, not limit them.
Join the Business Development Committee and create strategies to open lines of communication with agencies and primes to increase HUBZone contracting opportunities.
