Expanding Business Opportunities in Rural Wisconsin – JACKSON COUNTY – Newly Designated HUBZone

IN PERSON at the Black River Area Chamber of Commerce

February 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

In November 2022, it was announced that Governor Evers’s application to the U.S. Small Business Administration for HUBZone status for Jackson and Marinette Counties was approved.

The HUBZone program (Historically Underutilized Business Zone) supports small business growth with a goal of awarding at least 3% of federal contract dollars as well as 3% of large federal contractor subcontracting dollars to certified companies each year. The HUBZone map now includes Jackson and Marinette counties on the SBA HUBZone map as “Governor-Designated Covered Areas.”  Currently, many Federal agencies and Federal prime contractors are not meeting their HUBZone goals. Certified HUBZone firms have a unique preference in Federal government contracting.

Joining the session will be representatives from:

During this session, you will learn about:

  • Benefits of and applying for an SBA HUBZone certification
  • HUBZone certification requirements
  • The certification process
  • Locating HUBZone opportunities
  • Marketing your HUBZone certified business
