HUBZones (Historically Underutilized Business Zones) are programs created by the Small Business Administration (SBA) to help companies expand and grow in economically distressed communities by promoting job growth, economic development, and capital investment. They do this by providing small businesses that operate and employ people in these  economically challenged communities contracting opportunities that they would not otherwise have access to. The federal government’s goal is to award 3% of federal contracts to companies that operate in HUBZone map locations
