A HUBZone is a “historically underutilized business zone” located within communities with low incomes and/or high unemployment. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) administers the program and certifies businesses for eligibility. A HUBZone certified business is eligible for set-aside and sole-source contracting opportunities, and receives preferences in full and open competition for contracts. Information about the HUBZone program is available on the SBA website. HUBZone maps were updated in January 2018. Twenty-two of Norfolk’s census tracts are classified as either a qualified or redesignated census tract in Norfolk’s HUBZone. Use the mapping application set up by the SBA to find out if your property is in Norfolk’s HUBZone.
The interactive map below shows HUBZone boundaries. Type an address into the search box to zoom to the property.
