Can your Business Benefit from New York City Certification?

The City’s certification programs feature the Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Program, the Emerging Business Enterprise (EBE) Program and the Locally-based Business Enterprise (LBE) Program. We certify, promote, and foster the growth of the City’s M/WBEs and eligible small construction and construction-related businesses.

More than 4,500 businesses currently benefit from New York City Certification. The City spends up to $17 billion per year on goods and services. By 2025, the City aims to award $16 billion in City contracts to M/WBEs. Over the next five years, the City has goals to double the number of City-certified M/WBEs to 9,000, and increase the M/WBE utilization rate from 14% to 30%.

If you need help with getting certified, attend an upcoming certification workshop.

* Make sure to select the M/WBE or LBE FastTrack application when applying online.
