Door County businesses look to do more with federal agencies

Some businesses in Door County could stand to expand their reach by working with the federal government.  Last week, Door County was designated as a Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) qualified county. This means Door County businesses could get put to the head of the line when it comes federal procurement opportunities. With so many federal agencies and prime contractors not meeting their HUBZone goals, Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Jim Schuessler says that spells opportunity for the area.

The DCEDC will host an informational session about the HUBZone designation and how businesses can take advantage of the program on Tuesday at its Business Development Center in Sturgeon Bay. You can learn more about the session online with this story.
