HUBZone Map

 Is Your Company Located in a HUBZone?

hubzone map


HUBZone qualification is generally determined by income levels, unemployment rates,
Difficult Development Area status, base closure status, and/or Indian Land status.

Data that determine whether an area qualifies for HUBZone status include
income and unemployment information from a variety of sources. 

Most qualified areas are determined by county (in non-metropolitan areas)
or census tract (usually in metropolitan areas).

HUBZone Map Qualification Data Comes from a Variety of Sources
Census Tracts Housing & Urban Development (HUD) adjusted every 5 years
Non-Metropolitan Counties

Bureau of Labor Statistics (employment)
Census Bureau (income)
HUD (Difficult Development Areas)
adjusted annually

Indian Land Bureau of Indian Affairs adjusted as necessary
Base Closure Areas Defense adjusted as necessary
Since multiple agencies are responsible for providing updated information concerning the HUBZone Map, updates are often performed multiple times per year.  This is particularly the case with non-metropolitan county HUBZones, which have three types of qualification data generated by three different agencies.  The Small Business Administration is responsible for consolidating the information and maintaining the accuracy of the HUBZone Map.




As of January 2014, of the 3,233 counties
in the United States and its territories:

• 1,168 (36%) are metropolitan counties
that are not HUBZone-qualified but many of them
contain individual census tracts that are qualified.

• 1,304 (40%) are non-metropolitan counties
that are not HUBZone-qualified.

482 (15%) are non-metropolitan counties
that are HUBZone-qualified.

• 279 (9%) are non-metropolitan counties
that are redesignated HUBZones 
that will expire within the next few years.
