The Locally Based Enterprises Program (LBE) helps construction businesses get subcontracts with general contractors who have City government contracts.

The LBE Program does not assist designers, architects, and planners. To get certified, a company must meet program criteria, including gross earnings of less than $2 million, on average, for the last three years.

You can submit your LBE Certification application and check the status online. There is no fee to apply.


Apply for LBE certification.
