HUB Program Mission:

To promote participation of minority-, women-, and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, through the State of Texas HUB Program, and to make a "good faith effort" of ensuring that HUBs are afforded an equitable opportunity to compete for all procurement and contracting activities. 

A Historically Underutilized Business: 

  • is a for-profit entity that has not exceeded the size standard prescribed by 34 TAC §20.23, and has its principal place of business in Texas, and
  • is at least 51 percent owned by an Asian Pacific American, Black American, Hispanic American, Native American, American woman and/or Service-Disabled Veteran, who reside in Texas and actively participate in the control, operations and management of the entity’s affairs.

State agencies and universities are constantly looking to work with businesses certified as HUBs. The goal of this good-faith effort is to actively involve HUBs in the Texas procurement process and ensure they receive a fair share of state business.
