City of Lincoln
2005 Media Releases
The Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Directory has been updated and is now available on the City of Lincoln’s Web site, lincoln.ne.gov. The directory includes 262 listings for businesses owned by women and minorities in Lancaster County. The Directory was compiled by the Lincoln Commission on Human Rights (LCHR) and the Lincoln Lancaster Women’s Commission (LLWC) in cooperation with the Lincoln business community and the City of Lincoln.
“The HUB Directory is an effort to increase awareness and use of these businesses by the public and government,” said Mayor Coleen J. Seng. “It represents the City’s commitment to supporting and encouraging small businesses that have more than a 50-percent ownership by a woman or a member of the minority community. Having this information available on our Web site will help make it more accessible to the entire community.”
The directory can be accessed from the home page of the City Web site with the keyword HUB. Those listed in the HUB Directory must provide written permission from the business owner(s). Those wanting to apply to be listed in the Directory or to make corrections can access forms online or call LCHR at 441-7625 or LLWC at 441-7716. The Directory will be updated every six months, with the next update scheduled for January 2006.
Although all data in the directory has been verified, LCHR and LLWC do not assume responsibility for inaccuracies or errors of omission. The listing is not intended to be construed as an endorsement or recommendation.
