A Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) is a for-profit entity that has not exceeded the size standards prescribed by the Texas Administrative Code,(34 TAC §20.23) and has its principal place of business in Texas, AND is at least 51% owned by an Asian Pacific American, African American, Hispanic American, Native American, American women and/or Service Disabled Veteran (20% disability rating), who resides in Texas and actively participates in the control, operations and management of the entity's affairs.

In Fiscal Year 2015, the State of Texas awarded more than $2 billion in contracts to businesses certified as Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs). State agencies, including public colleges and universities, are constantly looking to work with HUB certified businesses. The goal of this good-faith effort is to actively involve HUBs in the Texas procurement process and to ensure they receive a fair share of state business.
