PTAC HUBZONE Outreach Event



Add to Calendar 8:00 AM 4/16/20193:00 PM America/Chicago PTAC HUBZONE Outreach Event

Join us for the IL PTAC HUBZone Outreach Event!

The Illinois SBDC/PTAC network is holding an informational workshop to promote, educate, and provide resources to small businesses eligible to participate in the SBA’s Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) program.

The Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) program helps small businesses in urban and rural communities to gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities. These preferences go to small businesses that obtain HUBZone certification in part by employing staff who live in a HUBZone. The company must also maintain a "principal office" in one of these specially designated areas.

Benefits for HUBZone eligible small businesses include competitive and sole source federal contracts set aside exclusively for HUBZone firms and a 10% price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions as well as subcontracting opportunities.

The federal government has a goal of awarding 3% of all dollars for federal prime contracts to HUBZone-certified small business concerns.

This conference will provide an overview of the HUBZone program along with a discussion of the program eligibility and benefits. Businesses will have the chance to ask questions to a panel of federal Contracting Officers, SBA Representatives, and subject matter experts.


The HUBZone event will take place in multiple locations across the State of Illinois, with an option for joining us virtually via webinar. Please review the event information below and register for the option that works best for you.


The HUBZone event in East St. Louis will offer a second part to the conference. Part two will provide a general overview on government contracting assistance and local resources. This part is made possible by the SBDC/PTAC network collaborating with the Greater East St. Louis Business Development Association (GEBDA).
