HUBZone contractors have been anxiously awaiting updates to the HUBZone maps. In 2021, the Small Business Administration (SBA) extended the “freeze” on the HUBZone maps until June 30, 2023, to provide enough time to update the maps based on the 2020 Census results. SBA targeted the release of a beta version of the new HUBZone maps in January 2023, and SBA recently hit that mark. A preview of the new HUBZone maps that will take effect on July 1, 2023, is now up on SBA’s website here. Government contractors that are currently HUBZone certified, or are planning on applying to the HUBZone program, should promptly check to see if their principal office location will be considered HUBZone eligible under the new maps.
