Certifications Overview for Black Owned Businesses
Black-owned businesses have faced historical disadvantages in the government marketplace. Federal, state, and local agencies, however, are aware of this and have responded by implementing programs to actively support the economic success of minority businesses.

This webinar is designed to provide an up-to-date overview on certifications that apply to Black-owned firms. We will discuss the certifications available to California-based businesses on the Federal, State and Local levels. We’ll go over the eligibility requirements as well as the benefits these certifications offer.

Certifications covered include:
• 8(a) Business Development Program – US Small Business Administration (SBA)
• Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) – US SBA
• HUBZone Certification – US SBA
• DBE Certification - California Dept. of Transportation and US Dept. of Transportation
• CPUC MBE Certification - CA State & Local Agencies

This is a high level overview – later this month, we’ll have presentations for deeper dives on the 8(a) and DBE programs.
