The HUBZone Maps landing page has recently been updated with PDF and Excel documents displaying the most up to date qualifications for counties. Last month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released 2012 annual unemployment data, which SBA uses to determine nonmetropolitan county eligibility.
Are you affected by these changes? You can find out by opening the PDF document for counties to check on the status of your county. If your county has become redesignated, its HUBZone status will expire in May 2016. If you have further questions about the HUBZone Maps or how this may affect your firm, please visit the maps section and the maintaining certification section of the FAQ page.
