Overall DBE Program Goals

TxDOT's Civil Rights Division establishes the triennial goal methodologies for DBE participation on USDOT-assisted contracts with Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds.


TxDOT’s DBE triennial goal methodology for 2020-2022 supports an overall goal of 14.4%. TxDOT plans to satisfy this goal on its FHWA funded contracts with a 7.5% race-conscious component and a 6.9% race-neutral component. The triennial DBE goal for 2020-2022 was adopted by the Texas Transportation Commission and approved by FHWA in February 2020.

The goal methodology was established using information from the disparity study conducted by Colette Holt & Associates.
