Eligible minority and woman owned companies can apply for certification as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE).

We require contractors to use certified DBE firms to complete up to 20% of the work on federally funded projects.

You compete against small DBE firms like your own for work, instead of larger firms.
