Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Certification Overview

Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Certification Overview

Thursday, June 30, 2022 10:00am to 11:00am

Is your small business located in one of California’s rural northern counties, including Humboldt, Mendocino, Del Norte, Siskiyou, Trinity, Modoc, Lassen, Plumas, Sierra, Tehama, Glenn, Colusa, or Lake? If so, chances are that you qualify for the Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Certification – a certification designed to give you a competitive advantage when bidding on federal contracts!

Getting HUBZone certified makes your business eligible to compete for special set-aside contracts. It also gives you preferential consideration in full and open competition. What’s more is that the federal government mandates at least 3% of Small Business contracting dollars be awarded to certified HUBZone firms. This goal often goes unmet. Join us for this free webinar to explore the benefits of the HUBZone certification. Get an overview of the application process and see if your business may qualify.

*There are also qualified HUBZone areas located in pockets throughout the Bay Area and other parts of California. View the SBA’s HUBZone map for details.

Webinar topics include:

  • Benefits and regulations of the program
  • Updates to the HUBZone Program
  • How to determine qualification
  • Overview of the application process
Location: Virtual (Zoom webinar)
