Minority Certification

Disadvantaged business enterprises are afforded special consideration for contracts awarded by certain state and federal agencies. It may also be advantageous for private businesses to subcontract with minority-owned entities. For these reasons, it is important that women-owned, Native American-owned and other minority-owned businesses acquire proof of their minority status.

For more information about Women-owned business certification, contact:
