Oklahoma Launches Destination HUBZone

The Oklahoma Small Business Administration Office will launch Destination: HUB in July to reintroduce Oklahoma Small Businesses to the advantages of HUBZone certification.  

For more than 17 years, the HUBZone program has served as one of SBA's signature initiatives and has helped small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities.

SBA's Destination: HUB will put a spotlight on small businesses and promote HUBZones as ideal places for government contractors to do business.
