The DBE Supportive Services Program aims to boost the involvement of certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) contractors and consultants in FDOT projects. The program strives to increase the percentage of dollars awarded to DBEs, foster the growth of DBEs, and promote their eventual self-sufficiency. This is achieved by providing assistance in understanding how to conduct business with FDOT, ensuring compliance with necessary regulations, and actively pursuing the program's defined goals and objectives.
