Learn how you can become a certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise and compete for federal funds.
Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certification is an invaluable resource for minority and women-owned small businesses that:
• Helps remove barriers for businesses who 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 federally funded contracts
• Helps businesses participate in federally funded transportation contracts through Bi-State Development, Missouri Department of Transportation and other regional organizations
Join us for our free virtual workshop to learn how you can become a DBE-certified firm – perfect for small business owners, construction firms, suppliers, and professional service agencies.
