Poliquin praised for effort to add business incentives at former
Brunswick Navy base
By Beth Brogan Bangor Daily News (ME) April 30, 2015,BRUNSWICK, Maine - The House Armed Services Committee on Thursday approved an amendment to the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act that, if approved by the Senate, would allow businesses on and near the former Brunswick Naval Air Station to qualify for a business incentive program offered by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
The HUBZone (Historically Underutilized Business Zone) program provides incentives to businesses affected by recent military base closures and those affiliated with the civilian redevelopment of closed military installations. Brunswick Naval Air Station, now called Brunswick Landing, closed in 2011 under the most recent Department of Defense’s Base Realignment and Closure process.
The HUBZone provides an advantage in acquiring federal government contracts to any qualifying business. Currently, a business qualifies for the program if at least 35 percent of its employees live on the former military base.
