ACT hosting meetings for DBE program

Amarillo City Transit is hosting two meetings for the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program.

The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program is a federal program managed by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) to encourage socially and/or economically disadvantaged firms to participate in USDOT-funded projects. 

ACT will host two meetings to discuss DBE goals and obtain feedback. Both meetings are at the ACT Department, located at 801 S.E. 23rd Ave. The dates and times are:

Tuesday, July 18, 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Thursday, July 20, 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The goals of the program are to remedy past and current discrimination against disadvantaged businesses and to help ensure a level playing field for DOT-assisted contracts. In addition, the program strives to improve flexibility and efficiency and reduce undue burdens on small businesses.

ACT has a timeline and a goal for the DBE program. From Oct. 1 to Sept. 30, 2026, ACT’s goal is for 9.15 percent of third-party procurements to be for businesses participating in the DBE Program.
