Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Goal

Pursuant to Section 49 Code of Federal Regulations Part 26, The City of Arlington has proposed an overall goal of 0.22% for the participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) in its Transportation Department contracts funded by the US Department of Transportation (DOT), through the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), effective August 1, 2023, through August 1, 2026. 

The City plans to achieve the overall DBE goal by using race-neutral participation. The goal is established to achieve a level playing field for DBEs to participate in the Transportation Departments’ contracting opportunities.
