Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program (DBE)

Opportunities for small, minority and woman-owned businesses

Norwalk Transit District (NTD) is committed in our efforts to expand contracting opportunities for small, minority and woman-owned businesses. In accordance with the DBE regulations codified at 49 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 26 (49 CFR, Part 26), NTD developed its triennial DBE participation methodology and goal, submitted for review and approval to the Federal Transit Administration on July 30, 2021.

The DBE goal established for Federal Fiscal Years 2022 through 2024 is 6.08%.

Certification is not required to do business with NTD.  However, DBE certification is required for small, minority and woman-owned businesses seeking to participate on Federally-funded, transit-related projects as a DBE.

Small, Minority and Woman-owned businesses can apply online for DBE certification by visiting the Connecticut Unified Certification Program’s (CA UCP) website. The website provides information about the Federal DBE Program as well as detailed instructions for applying.
