Residents / Career Seekers
To qualify for careers with local HUBZone companies, you must reside in a HUBZone. The term "reside", as defined by the SBA, means to live in a primary residence at a place for at least 180 days, or as a currently registered voter, and with intent to live there indefinitely. Employers should be aware that it makes no difference which HUBZone their employees reside in. An employee can reside in one HUBZone and work in another and meet the standards for this residency requirement.
