Seeking Historically Underutilized Businesses

Camden County is currently in the process of creating a vendor listing of Historically Underutilized Businesses in order to improve our compliance with the HUB requirements.  A vendor listing would assist us in being able to identify those we could invite to bid on future projects.


North Carolina law defines a HUB, or, “historically underutilized business” as a business that is at least 51 percent owned (or, in the case of a corporation, at least 51 percent of the stock is owned) and day-to-day management and daily business operations are controlled by one or more citizens or lawful permanent residents who are members of a minority or socially and economically disadvantaged group. A “minority person” is a member of one or more of the following demographic groups:

  • Black—a person having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa;
  • Hispanic—a person of Spanish or Portuguese culture having origins in Mexico, South or Central America, or the Caribbean islands, regardless of race;
  • Asian American—a person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, Asia, Indian continent, or Pacific islands;
  • American Indian—a person having origins in any of the original Indian peoples of North America;
  • Female;
  • Disabled—a person with a disability as defined in G.S. 168-1 or G.S. 168A-3.11
