• HUBZones

    The SBA's HUBZone program provides incentives for government agencies to purchase goods and services from historically distressed areas and Indian areas. The government's goal is to have 3% of all purchases come from HUBZones (23% of all purchases are to come from small business as a whole). Businesses must apply to be HUB-zone certified and must comply with the following:
    • The business' primary office must be located in a HUBZone
    • It must be owned and controlled by one or more US Citizen(s)
    • At least 35% of its employees must reside in a HUBZone.
    What to do:

    Go to http://map.sba.gov/hubzone/maps/ and enter your city to see if there are any areas designated as HUBZones. It is easiest to use the Address-Town-County Search, rather than the map, because the map only shows the larger HUB areas.

    Most of the southwest area of Newnan is a designated HUB zone.

    If you are locating in a HUBZone, go to http://www.sba.gov/content/applying-hubzone-program to apply.
