AKWESASNE — Mohawk Networks, LLC has been accepted into the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Program. The HUBZone Program is a federal contracting support initiative designed to foster the growth of small businesses in historically underutilized business zones, including Tribal territories.
The program is administered by the SBA, with the objective of allocating a minimum of 3% of federal contract funds to HUBZone-certified companies annually. Networks’ acceptance into the program serves as an extra level of certification that will enhance the company's federal contracting endeavors. This certification also builds upon the 8(a) status the company previously obtained in 2021, further advancing its position in federal contracting.
“Mohawk Networks’ HUBZone certification represents a milestone in the company’s evolution as both an incubator for technical expertise and a growth catalyst in revenue diversification, which will further support our long-term strategy of building a federal contracting business that will have a generational impact for our community,” expressed the Company’s General Manager, Allyson Mitchell. Mohawk Networks continues to operate as a full-service Internet Service Provider (ISP) for both new and existing customers, providing high-speed Internet, video, and VoIP (voice) services. “Our entire team remains committed to the mission of providing broadband access with high reliability and availability to the community of Akwesasne.”
The Tribally-owned company is overseen by a seven-member Board of Managers with diverse areas of expertise in information technology, economic development and leadership. "With HUBZone certification and 8(a) status, Mohawk Networks strengthens its influence on local development, job creation, and community empowerment. We manage infrastructure, and keeping our community connected is paramount. The Board anticipates leveraging these designations to contribute to our community's socio-economic progression, aligning with our mission to connect communities, drive progress, and continuously invest in our workforce,” expressed the Board Chairman, Marvin Phillips.
