The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Airport Concession (ACDBE) programs are the Department's signature small business initiatives, each playing a critical role in small minority and women-owned firms' ability to participate in the nation's infrastructure redevelopment.

DBE prime and subcontractors received approximately $5 billion ( 11 %) of that amount.
