Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program

The County of Sonoma Transportation & Public Works Department is committed providing equal opportunity for the socially and economically disadvantaged, minorities, women, and small businesses participating in contracting opportunities.

    What is the DBE Program?

    The DBE Program applies federal guidelines to all procurements that receive federal funding from the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT). These guidelines aim to facilitate competition by small business concerns by taking reasonable steps to eliminate obstacles to their participation.
