Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program

Supportive Services Program


The DBE Supportive Services program is designed to assist qualified minority- and woman-owned businesses to become certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) firm. Once certified, the program strives to assist DBE firms to get work on federal-aid contracts and to become self-sufficient in their respective industries. A variety of training programs and technical assistance is provided by the Supportive Services program staff to assist DBEs in meeting these goals.

Companies registered as Small Business Concerns (SBC) can also participate in the same conferences and trainings offered to DBEs.
