The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program is designed to remedy ongoing discrimination and the continuing effects of past discrimination in federally-assisted highway, transit, airport, and highway safety financial assistance transportation contracting markets nationwide. The primary remedial goal and objective of the DBE program is to level the playing field by providing small businesses owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals a fair opportunity to compete for federally funded transportation contracts.
Likewise, the DBE Goal Methodology for federal fiscal years 2023-2026 are included for public inspection. The overall 2023-2026 DBE Goal is 4.73%.
