The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program encourages minority-owned and women-owned business enterprises to participate in government contracts by establishing DBE participation goals.
What is a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise?
DBEs are for-profit small businesses which are at least 51% owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.
The following groups are presumed to be socially and economically disadvantaged:
- African Americans
- Native Americans
- Asian-Pacific and Subcontinent Asian Americans
Other individuals can also qualify as socially and economically disadvantaged on a case-by-case basis
Why is the City Maintaining a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program?
The City of Round Rock will continue to receive financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Transportation/Federal Transit Administration to fund transit projects and programs. As a result, the City is required to maintain its DBE Program. Documents (PDF)
