Hythe Awarded HUBZone Certification
from Small Business Administration

HAVRE DE GRACE, MD, MAY 18, 2020 — Hythe Research, a Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) that partners with large consulting firms to work on federal government contracts is pleased to announce its certification as a HUBZone business by the United States Small Business Administration (SBA). As a HUBZone-certified business, Hythe is able to deepen its social mission to provide economic growth and opportunity in Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZones).

To achieve HUBZone Certification, Hythe had to meet a range of criteria that included its principal office being located in a Federally-mapped HUBZone area and 35% or more of its employees residing within HUBZone regions. Hythe also had to submit to a comprehensive application process that confirmed these and other stringent requirements as set forth by the program.

“Through the HubZone program, we have been able to hire and train well qualified candidates, many of them in our town of Havre de Grace,” says Heather Couvillon Lufburrow, Hythe’s Founder and CEO. “In anticipation of new requirements, we have continued to prepare our corporate abilities and invest in the community around us. I am proud of our impact and look forward to growing in a meaningful way.” 

About Hythe

At Hythe, we partner with large consulting firms to work on federal government contracts, and we understand the unique balance between the end client and the prime’s needs. We do this by aligning our business practices to support that focus and by leveraging our technical expertise in areas such as logistical support, programmatic support, scientific and technical support, and IT solutions and support.

Federal agencies strive to maintain 3% of all annual contracts to be set-aside for certified small businesses, which provides Hythe, as a WOSB and HUBZone certified, with increased opportunities when pursuing specified Federal IT contracts. Additionally large businesses may struggle to find a HubZone company that can meet contract specific obligations and resourcing requirements. Hythe has the resources in place to quickly staff engineering, logistics, management, and training requirements for the DOD and large integrators. Our corporate infrastructure includes a DCAA-ready accounting system, timekeeping, and property management, as well as security and IT.
