As a contractor, you may find your small business looking to be more competitive when it comes to bidding on government projects. Large government projects typically have a payout just as large, and securing one of these contracts can help your small contracting business thrive for weeks, if not months after completion. If you want to have a fighting chance on attaining one of these jobs, a HUBZone certification could be the leg up your roofing contractor small business needs.
HUBZone Program Qualification
To qualify for the HUBZone program, there are four primary specifications your business must meet. According to the U.S. Small Business Association, these are:
- Your business must qualify as a “small business” according to their guidelines
- You, or at least 51% of the owners of your business, must be U.S. citizens (with a few exceptions)
- Your employees (or at least 35% of them) must live in a HUBZone
- And, your primary office must be in a HUBZone
Most of these qualifications are not easily met. After all, you cannot change your citizenship or the living situations of your employees at the drop of a hat. One, however, can be achieved quickly and conveniently with the help of a virtual office service.
