ABOUT THE COUNCIL

The HUBZone Council is a 501(c)(6) non-profit trade association comprised of a group of companies and organizations working together to improve and support the HUBZone program and small business community.  When first introduced, the HUBZone program promised to create opportunities for small businesses in low-income communities by helping entrepreneurs access the Federal marketplace.   The philosophy was that the unemployed become employed, spending increases within distressed communities and the benefits are shared by many. However, despite its many promises the companies that have invested heavily into relocating or staffing their businesses within distressed areas are finding little or no returns on those investments.   The Council believes that it will take a change in acquisition philosophy to truly make an impact within these under-served communities but to do that we your help need help.  For the past 20 years the Council has been a proud supporter of the HUBZone Program however, as a non-profit our impact is dependent on the generosity and support of others.


Most recently the HUBZone Council and its Advocacy team played an instrumental role in achieving HUBZone Program reforms under the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The changes implemented under the NDAA provided business certainty for thousands of small business across the nation.  The comprehensive reform of this (SBA) program provides small businesses with greater economic certainty, facilitates timely communication between HUBZone firms and the SBA, and expands the program to revitalize even more of our nation's emerging communities.  


OUR FOCUS

Legislative Reform 

Programs bound by regulatory and statutory requirements are only as effective as the laws that bind it. The Council has been working closely with Congressional representatives  on program refinements. 


Don't wait for change, make it happen!



Increase HUBZone Spending

Since the government has never met its HUBZone goal of 3%, the HUBZone council is dedicated to fighting for better acquisition practices to maximize the ability to compete not limit them.  The HUBZone Council supports the expansion of sole sourcing as a means to meet small business goals.


"Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together."

Economic & Community 

Development 

To many of the members of our organization the HUBZone program is more than a federal contracting program, it is a means to facilitate job creation and economic growth within the communities that need it most. 


Each one of us can make a difference. Together we can make a change Barbara Mikulski
