WHAT:  The U.S. Small Business Administration, along with the City of Providence, the Rhode Island Small Business Development Center, and the Center for Women & Enterprise, will conducting a HUBZone education and training event. The Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Program is designed to introduce your business to the program, help determine whether your business is eligible for the program, and support your business' efforts to participate in the program.

 

WHY:   Every year, the federal government awards over $500 billion in contracts, and a significant share of those contracts are specifically allotted to small businesses. SBA works with federal agencies to assist them in identifying and awarding contracts in order to meet the 23% statutory goal of government-wide small business prime contracting. Agencies are also required to award 3% of contracts to small businesses located in historically underutilized business zones (HUBZones).  SBA encourages small businesses to learn more about the HUBZone program and take advantage of this federal contracting opportunity.

 

WHO: The session is designed for all small businesses considering HUBZone certification or looking for more information on the HUBZone program.

 

WHEN:  Thursday, November  29, 2012 - Two Sessions - 9:00am - 11:00am  or 4:00pm - 6:00pm

 

WHERE:  Center for Women & Enterprise, Providence, Rhode Island
