Are you in a HUBZone? And what does it mean if you are?
 Learn about the basics of federal contracting
 Learn about HUBZones and if you are eligible
 What are next steps to getting certified

Noted by census tracks, HUBZones are federally designated areas that are deemed “underutilized” – meaning they face economic challenges or have little economic development. Small businesses in these areas may be able to compete for HUBZones set aside contracts, providing them an avenue for growth and expansion.

PTAC will be offering HUBZone related workshops throughout the fall of 2016 geared toward small businesses in HUBZones. Our workshops will help the small business owner in a HUBZone understand the program as well as how to get certified and how to prepare for government contracting.

To check if your business is in a HUBZone, click on this SBA link http://map.sba.gov/hubzone/maps/.

Be prepared to ask questions, network and learn the basics of how government contracting works as well as what services your Arizona PTAC offers.

Kate Hoy is a Procurement Specialist for AZPTAC.  Kate spent 4 years as a proposal writer and another 4 years working for the Arizona Department of Health Services before joining PTAC in 2015.
