The DBE program was established to ensure that firms owned by minorities, women and other socially and economically disadvantaged persons have an equal opportunity to participate in U.S. DOT-assisted projects.  The goal of the program is to level the playing field on which DBEs may compete for contracts and subcontracts in the transportation industry.

Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) is a for-profit small business concern that is at least 51% owned and controlled by one or more U. S. citizens or permanent residents who are both socially and economically disadvantaged.
