Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Program

The NYC Online Directory of Certified Businesses website provides a comprehensive, searchable tool that will help both city buyers and private entities locate certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises (M/WBEs), Emerging Business Enterprises (EBEs), and or Locally-based Enterprises (LBEs) throughout the New York City tri-state area. Visit the NYC Online Directory of Certified Businesses to find detailed information on certified companies, including a brief description of their work history, contact information, and detailed information about what the companies sell.

The Unprecedented #OpportunitiesRising bill (S6418A/A8407) was officially signed into law by Albany. New York City certified M/WBEs will now be able to better compete and grow their businesses to benefit communities across all five boroughs. The new state law will increase NYC agencies' discretionary spending limit for goods, services and construction purchases from M/WBEs to $500,000. The bill will also create mentor-protégé programs within the NYC Department of Design and Construction (DDC) — which will provide M/WBEs with individualized on-the-job training and guidance to grow their capacity and thrive. Finally, the law enables City agencies to create pre-qualified lists for M/WBEs. Formerly, the discretionary spending limit for all City vendors was $35,000 for construction and $20,000 for goods and services. In 2017, through advocacy efforts led by Mayor’s office of M/WBEs, along with the entrepreneurs themselves and M/WBE champions in the state legislature, the discretionary amount for goods and services purchases from M/WBEs was increased from $20,000 to $150,000.
