Follow the Money: How Public Contracts Can Boost Historically Underutilized Businesses Across NC

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to play out across the state hurting people and businesses, rebuilding will require redoubled efforts to break down barriers to opportunity for communities of color in particular. New research shows that public contracts can boost Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) and support a host of employment and wealth-building goals for communities.

At this virtual panel session, researchers, practitioners, and advocates will share new analysis of public contracts in 20 counties and engagement of HUBs as well as new programs being rolled out by the state HUB Office. Join us to learn more and ways to engage your local leaders in policies that advance HUBs.
