Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program

DBEs are for-profit small business concerns where socially and economically disadvantaged individuals own at least a 51% interest and also control management and daily business operations.

African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian-Pacific and Subcontinent Asian Americans, and women are presumed to be socially and economically disadvantaged. Other individuals can also qualify as socially and economically disadvantaged on a case-by-case basis.

When choosing vendors and suppliers to work with us, JeT strives to establish a level playing field for the various businesses that compete for the taxpayer dollars we spend. To achieve this goal, we participate in the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program.
