DBE Certification opens doors for small businesses to compete for U.S. DOT, federal funding
Minority and women-owned businesses throughout the bi-state region are invited to a special Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Certification Workshop on Friday, Sept. 9, to learn how they can become a certified DBE and compete for federal funds from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).
This workshop is virtual and free to attend. Participants can register for the workshop at bistatedev.org/DBEworkshop.
DBE certification is an invaluable resource for minority and women-owned small businesses that:
- Helps remove barriers for businesses that want to access federally funded projects from the U.S. Department of Transportation
- Creates a level playing field for businesses so they can compete fairly for contracts
- Helps businesses participate in federally funded transportation contracts through Bi-State Development, Missouri Department of Transportation and other regional organizations
This workshop was designed for small business owners, construction firms, suppliers and professional services firms. For questions or more information, please contact the Bi-State Development Supplier Diversity Office at (314) 982-1400, extension 1352.
