Scottsboro is located in a HUBZone. The HUBZone Empowerment Contracting Program allows small businesses, located in so-called “Historically Under-utilized Business Zones,” to negotiate sole source contracts and participate in restricted competition limited to HUBZone firms. Fostering the growth of these federal contractors as viable businesses, for the long term, helps to empower communities, create jobs, and attract private investment. Qualified companies qualify for a 10% price evaluation preference in full and open competition.  The firm must be a small business that is owned and controlled by U.S. citizens and at least 35 percent of its employees must be HUBZone residents.
