Opening the door to opportunities.

The City of Austin's Small & Minority Business Resources Department (SMBR) was created  by City Council in 1987 to administer the Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE), Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE), and the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) programs within our community.

The City’s MBE/WBE/DBE department:

  • Promotes and encourages minority, women, and disadvantaged business owners to participate in business opportunities with the City of Austin;

  • Affords Minority-Owned Business Enterprises (MBE), Women-Owned Business Enterprises (WBEs) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) an equal opportunity to compete for work on City contracts.

  • Encourages bidders to solicit certified MBEs, WBEs and DBEs for subcontracting opportunities.

  • Assist certified businesses and businesses seeking certification with learning about opportunities available on the 2016 Mobility Bond
