Mohawk Networks Announces HUBZone Certification

[Akwesasne, NY] – Mohawk Networks, LLC is proud to announce its acceptance 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
