HUB_zone Program

The Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUB_zone) 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 HUB_zone Empowerment Act became law as part of the Small Business Re authorization Act of 1997.


The Small Business Administration (SBA) regulates and implements the program, determines which businesses are eligible to receive HUB_zone contracts, maintains a database of qualified HUB_zone businesses, and adjudicates protests of eligibility to receive HUB_zone contracts.


HUB_zones are determined by economic indicators and include qualified urban and suburban census tracts, non-metropolitan counties, lands within the external boundaries of Indian reservations, qualified base closure areas, and/or other designated areas. See HUB_zone Map for more details.There is a government-wide goal for most agencies to award at least three percent (3%) of their eligible federal contracting dollars to HUB_zone-certified firms. Although several agencies have met or exceeded this goal over the years, it has never been achieved government-wide.

Almost all federal agencies participate in the HUB_zone program. However,

(1) the provisions of the Small Business Act apply only to procurements made in the United States.

(2) most procurements made by the U.S. Postal Service, the Federal Aviation Administration, The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation,the U.S. Congress, and procurements made through GSA schedules are excluded from the HUB_zone Program.
