Set-Aside Alert takes an in-depth look at the Small Business Administration’s HUBZone program for small businesses.

Under the program, thousands of census tracts around the country have been designated HUBZones due to a high percentage of people in poverty, and other factors. Small businesses established in these areas, and with a portion of their employees living in these areas, are eligible to compete for HUBZone set-asides in federal contracting.

Here are the stories:

  • Which states have the most HUBZone firms?
  • HUBZones losing momentum
  • Best and worst states for HUBZone set-aside opportunities
  • Top 20 federal agencies for HUBZone set-aside opportunities
  • Top industries for HUBZone set-asides
  • HUBZone firms not relying on set-asides
