HQ AFMC/SB HUBZone Outreach

  • 3640 Colonel Glenn Dayton, Ohio 45324 United States

What is a HUBZone? HUBZone is a company level diversity certification referring to the Historically Underutilized Business Zone program that helps small businesses located in distressed areas gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities. The HUBZone program is in place to increase employment opportunities, investment and economic development in these areas. The Small Business Administration (SBA) regulates and implements the HUBZone program. HUBZones are defined as distressed rural and urban communities, typically having low median household incomes, high unemployment or both; the location of these communities is determined by data gathered from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Bureau of the Census, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Department of Defense.

This HUBZone outreach event is designed to encourage and educate small businesses in ways they can take advantage of the opportunities afforded to them by the federal government. HUBZone promotes economic development in geographic regions that have been historically underutilized as business zones and helps to create jobs where they are needed most.

We invite our government, HUBZone contractors, other industry and community partners to attend this session to 1) become familiar with processes and procedures associated with contracting with the government under the HUBZone program; and 2) to identify and pursue contract opportunities with the Air Force for the HUBZone Program
