2024 Expanding Business Opportunities in Rural Wisconsin – Juneau County HUBZone

January 1, 1970  
Start Date

Governor Evers’s application to the U.S. Small Business Administration for HUBZone status for Juneau County has recently been 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 Juneau County 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:

  • Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC)
  • U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)
  • Wisconsin Office of Rural Prosperity
  • Regional resource providers
  • Wisconsin Procurement Institute (WPI)

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

The event is located in Room 220.
