The City of Philadelphia DBE Program Office certifies firms to participate on projects that receive federal funding. The DBE Program Office operates under federal law (49 CFR Part 23 & Part 26 ) and the Mayor’s Executive Order #14-08. The DBE Program is a small business program that has both personal net worth and business size caps.
The Pennsylvania Unified Certification Program (PA UCP) provides “one stop shopping” for certification of DBE applicants. A DBE applicant need only file one application to become certified for all recipients of United States Department of Transportation (FAA, FHWA, and/or the FTA) funds in Pennsylvania.
Our Brochure provides more information on the Philadelphia DBE Program and The PA UCP.
