HUBZone Map


SBA launched the new Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) map in June 2017. The HUBZone map is the first step in the HUBZone modernization effort as part of the Certify platform.

The new HUBZone map allows small businesses to determine if their principal office and 35% of their employees are located within a HUBZone area. The new map features the latest regulation changes to the HUBZone Program, updates to designations until June 2017 and new features to improve usability an the users' experience. 

Can I submit my HUBZone online application through

No. We are working to include the HUBZone Program into the Certify Platform in the future. For now, use the new map to:

  1. See whether your principal office, and your employees addresses are located in a Qualified HUBZone. 
  2. If an address is within a HUBZone, from the map, you can download the Printable Version needed for your application. 

The SBA will evaluate your application throughly using the data from the new HUBZone map. 

How do I submit my HUBZone online application?

For now, you must connect to the HUBZone Certification Tracking System (HCTS) in order to submit your HUBZone application. Log in to HCTS using SBA's General Login System. For help with the HUBZone Application please visit the HUBZone Program section on the portal

How does the HUBZone map work?

The HUBZone map includes a Help section that provides an overview of the tool, and answers to the most frequently asked questions - such as determining eligibility, providing documentation to SBA, understanding the map, and using advanced features of the map.
