Historically Underutilized Business Program (HUB)

Austin ISD's Historically Underutilized Business Program is committed to advancing equity in contracting, ensuring HUB firms can compete fairly and participate in construction-related, bond-funded projects. The HUB Program is a core business strategy for the district, formally adopted by the trustees in August 2016. A HUB is a business that is 51% owned, managed and controlled by a minority or woman — groups that are historically underrepresented in architecture, construction and other professional services. Austin ISD supports one of the most comprehensive public school HUB programs in the nation, providing tools for minority- and women-owned businesses to do business with the district.


Sustainability is a top priority for all projects implemented through the 2022 Bond. The standard for all full modernization projects will be to reach Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Austin Energy Green Building (AEGB) certifications.
