Overall DBE Program Goals

Our 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.

FHWA

Our FHWA DBE triennial goal methodology for 2020-2022 supports an overall goal of 14.4%. We plan to satisfy this goal on its FHWA-funded contracts with a 7.5% race-conscious component and a 6.9% race-neutral component.

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