Best Value for the Government
"Through their ability to receive sole-source contracts above the 8(a) ceiling, NHO 8(a)s offer a highly valuable time and cost effectiveness to the contracting process, which, coupled with the ingenuity and agility of customer response offered by small firms, makes NHO 8(a)s attractive vendors and business partners."

Effective October 3, 2016, the SBA made a final rule to expand the HUBZone program to assist small businesses in disasters areas and base closure areas and provides equal treatment under the HUBZone program for small businesses owned by NHOs. Eligible NHOs can now support the SBA in promoting economic development and employment growth in distressed areas by providing access to more federal contracting opportunities. (www.sba.gov)
