DC Mayor Gray Launches Small Biz Contracting Initiative

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray launched his small business initiative Friday aimed at stimulating the local economy and giving small businesses additional contracting opportunities.

Gray launched HUB D.C. at the Regus business center.

HUB D.C. is part of the Small Business Administration‘s Historically Underutilized Business Zone program.

To be included in the HUBZone program, companies must meet SBA standards and have a majority of their business operating in the HUBZone.

The program website says firms can benefit from competitive opportunity, full and open opportunity, sole-source opportunity and subcontracting.

HUBZones were enacted into law as a result of the Small Business Reauthorization Act of 1997.

Attendees of the center launch included:
