Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE)

The Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) Program is specifically designed to advocate and facilitate business growth and provide opportunities for historically underutilized businesses. 

The City’s goal is to contract — and subcontract — 15 percent of the contract amount to Certified MWBEs on construction projects of $300,000 or more (or contracts of $100,000 or more that include any state funding).
