Federal Contracting Certification Programs:
HUBZone Program and the 8(a) Business Development Program
The Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZones) Program helps small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities. The mission is to promote job growth, and capital investment to small businesses located in these economically distressed communities.
The 8(a) Business Development Program helps small, disadvantaged businesses compete in the marketplace. The Program offers contractual assistance, financial assistance and management and technical assistance to firms that are owned and controlled at least 51% by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. If you are interested in learning the eligibility requirements for participating in these programs, please see information below on how to register below. These workshops will cover the benefits of participating in these programs. Join us for an information session that will increase your knowledge and ability!
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the workshop. The workshop begins promptly at 9:00 am.
