Disadvantaged and Small Business Enterprises

We encourage Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) and Small Business Enterprises (SBE) to register. DBE’s may register at the Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises website omwbe.wa.gov. There are several resources available to DBE’s looking for funding and technical assistance.  The US Department of Transportation (DOT)  Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization’s (OSDBU) provides technical and financial assistance, including outreach and training services to small businesses in order to prepare them to compete and participate in federally funded contracts.

The City of Longview is proposing a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal for  October 1, 2017 – September 30, 2020 is 1%. To review the goal methodology click here.
