A HUBZone is an U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) program for small businesses that operate and employ people in Historically Underutilized Business Zones. Designated HUBZones in North Dakota include the highlighted counties in the graphic above (Benson, Bottineau, Burke, Eddy, Emmons, Golden Valley, Grant, Kidder, McIntosh, McLean, Nelson, Oliver, Pembina, Pierce, Rolette, Sheridan, Sioux, Towner, Walsh and Wells) as well as all Indian Reservations.

HUBZone Certification gives small businesses an advantage when bidding on federal contracts:

  • Federal agencies and large prime contractors have a goal to spend 3% of their budgets with HUBZone-certified small businesses.
  • HUBZone-certified small businesses qualify for the program's set-aside contracts and may receive a 10% price evaluation preference when competing on unrestricted contracts.
  • In addition, SBA offers fee relief for loans less than $150,000 made to businesses in HUBZones.

Before you can participate in the HUBZone program, you must be certified by the SBA.
