MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A lesser known government program is rewarding small businesses for coming to and staying in areas like Myrtle Beach.
Tucked away in a small part of the city, you'll find Edward Tkacz and his engineering company.
"The big picture is to get these areas to a point where they are economically capable,” said Tkacz.
"If you're looking at a ten million dollar contract, that's a million dollar difference,” explained Tkacz. “That's a big difference."
Myrtle Beach isn’t the only HUBZone locally. The program has a map, with HUBZones all around the country.
