Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program

HART contracts millions of dollars in federal transportation funds. As a result, HART is required to have a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program which establishes non-discrimination practices and measures. A DBE is defined as a for-profit small business that is at least 51 percent owned by minorities, women and other socially economically disadvantaged persons, and who is the day-to-day manager.

HART has established a DBE program in accordance with the regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). HART has received federal financial assistance from USDOT and as a condition of receiving this assistance, HART has signed an assurance with the USDOT that it will comply with 49 CFR Part 26.
