The Small Business Administration (“SBA”) recently launched a new version of the Historically Underutilized Business Zone (“HUBZone”) map on the SBA website. The new HUBZone map designates areas as eligible HUBZone locations and indicates whether an address qualifies as one or more HUBZone designations, such as census tract, county, Indian land, disaster area, closed base area, or redesignated area. For certain types of HUBZones, like redesignated areas, disaster areas, and closed base areas, the map also indicates the date when the area will stop qualifying as a HUBZone. SBA touted the new map as containing new features to improve usability of the map.
