What is a HUBZone Redesignated Area?


The SBA Act provides for grandfathering QCTs and QNMCs that lose their HUBZone eligibility.  During this grandfathering period, the area is termed a redesignated area.  The redesignation expires on the later of the date on which the Census Bureau publicly releases the first results from the 2010 decennial census, or three (3) years after the date on which the census tract or nonmetropolitan county ceased to be qualified (i.e., became redesignated).
