A program of the U.S. Small Business Administration, the HUBZone program helps small businesses gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities while increasing employment opportunities in economically distressed areas. In an effort to assist local businesses with navigating the HUBZone certification process, the Leesburg Economic Development Office has partnered with local business owners who have completed the process successfully to present quarterly information sharing meetings.
