Agency Info

The Virginia Department of Transportation Business Opportunity and Workforce Development (BOWD) Center receives funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to implement the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Supportive Services Program. The primary purpose of the DBE/SS program is to provide training, assistance and services to disadvantaged business enterprises to help these businesses grow, become self-sufficient, more competitive in pursuing federally funded contract opportunities, move into non-traditional areas of work and compete in the marketplace beyond the DBE program. The BOWD Center provides a variety of supportive services to DBE firms to help strengthen their infrastructure, increase capacity and profitability and the ability to move to the next level.
