The HUBZone program certifies businesses in historically underutilized business zones (HUBZones) for preferential access to federal contracts, aligning with the government’s goal to allocate 3 percent of federal contracting dollars to HUBZone-certified small businesses annually. Benefits of HUBZone certification include the ability to bid on contracts reserved for HUBZone businesses and a 10 percent price evaluation preference in full and open competition procurements. To qualify, a business must meet SBA size standards, have majority ownership by U.S. citizens or specific organizations, maintain a principal office in a HUBZone, and employ at least 35 percent of its workforce from HUBZone residents. Detailed qualification criteria can be found in Title 13 Part 126 Subpart B of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
