This August, The Delaware Black Chamber of Commerce’s virtual learning series featuring SBA Delaware small-business-building webinars continues with free-of-charge webinars introducing the HUBZone federal government contracting program and the 8(a) Business Development Program.

 

The HUBZone Program fuels small business growth in historically underutilized business zones with a goal of awarding at least 3% of federal contract dollars to HUBZone-certified companies each years.

 

The 8(a) program offers contractual assistance, financial assistance and management and technical assistance to firms that are owned and controlled at least 51% by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. The federal government's goal is to award at least eleven percent (11%) of all federal contracting dollars spent stateside to small disadvantaged businesses – a category that includes 8(a) firms – each year. 

 

Registration is required to participate.

Introduction to the HUBZone Federal Government Contracting Program: Learn the benefits, eligibility criteria, and application process for the HUBZone Federal Government Contracting Program. Under the HUBZone Federal Government Contracting Program, the federal government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses in historically underutilized business zones. It also gives preferential consideration to those businesses in full and open competition. Joining the HUBZone program makes a small business eligible for consideration on sole-source and competitive set-aside federal government contracting opportunities. HUBZone-certified businesses also get a 10% price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions.

 

Wednesday, August 10, 2022 (10:00 am - 12:00 om EST)

Learn the benefits, eligibility criteria and application process for the 8(a) Business Development Program. The 8(a) Program is a robust, 9-year business development program, and 8(a) certification qualifies small businesses as eligible for consideration on sole-source and competitive set-aside federal government contracting opportunities.
