The Federal Government Is Buying!! In 2017, SBA 8a and HUBZone programs developed over $435M in federal government contracting revenues in North Carolina alone! That makes SBA one of the largest prime contractors within the federal government!!
This seminar will provide information and steps necessary to enroll in the SBA Socio-Economic programs known as 8a and HUBZone.
8a is a program for 51% owned minority, women, and disabled veterans owned businesses that are also economically disadvantaged (with a liquid net worth LESS than $250k).
For 8a, you should be in business 2+ years track record and financially able to provide contracting services to the US GOV.
For HUBZone or Historically Under-utilized Business Zone, you must have your primary office located in a low-income census tract area as designated by the most recent census. Also, 35% of employees must live in that or neighboring HUBZone area to maintain status as a HUBZone eligible company.
Also, you will learn about contracting opportunities with the General Services Administration (GSA) and Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and a number of North Carolina based small business success stories in contracting will be discussed.
