New HUBZone In Allegany County

February 28th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Governor Wes Moore approved the state’s petition for new HUBZone areas from the U.S. Small Business Administration. One new HUBZone is known as Census Tract 22 in Allegany County. The new HUBZone will bring significant economic development opportunities to one of Maryland’s most rural communities. Census Tract 22 covers Westernport, McCoole, Danville, Dawson, Luke and Franklin.  Businesses within HUBZone-designated areas can compete for federal set-aside contracts and receive preferential procurement consideration.
