M/WBE Program

M/WBE Program

Local Business Participation

The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) is committed to the goals and strategies of Section 6-129 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York, which established the City's Minority and Women Business Enterprise Program. Section 6-129 details certification, contract participation goals, business assistance and administrative procedures to promote the utilization of firms certified by the New York City Department of Small Business Services (SBS) for contract and subcontract opportunities.

For more information on Building Opportunity, a program for Minority and Women-Owned Businesses in affordable housing development, visit our webpage on M/WBE Initiatives.

Learn more about the M/WBE Program.

City agencies can award contracts of up to $500,000 for goods, professional services, standard services and construction directly to City-certified M/WBEs without formal competition using the M/WBE Noncompetitive Small Purchase Method. This streamlined process makes it easier for the City to do business with M/WBEs. Don't miss out! Be ready to receive and respond to these opportunities directed specifically to our City-certified M/WBE businesses by creating an account in PASSPort today. Find the simple two-step account creation instructions here.

For more information on responding to M/WBE Noncompetitive Small Purchase Method requests for quotes, please find the three-step process here.
