Mountain Line has established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program to bid on federally funded projects, products and services. Firms owned and controlled by 51% or more by women, minorities or other socially or economically disadvantaged individuals or groups are eligible to apply for DBE certification. Mountain Line’s board of directors approved the program at the September 4, 2015 board meeting.
Every three years, Mountain Line must submit an updated DBE goal and methodology to the Federal Transit Administration. The agency is currently undergoing this updating process and had its draft plan linked below for review.
To provide comment on this plan, or to learn more about our DBE opportunities or program, please contact Shanti Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (406) 543-8386 for further information.
