Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program

The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program (DBE) is a legislatively mandated USDOT program that applies to federal-aid highway dollars expended on federally-assisted contracts issued by USDOT recipients such as State Transportation Agencies.  The U.S. Congress established the DBE program in 1982 to:

  • Ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of
    DOT-assisted contracts; (DBE Program);
  • Help remove barriers to the participation of DBEs in
    DOT-assisted contracts,  (DBE Program); and
  • Assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in
    the marketplace outside of the DBE program (DBE Supportive Services).
