New York MWBE Program

The program summary on this page was last updated on 07/12/2018. If any of the information or links are out-of-date, please contact us.

New York's Division of Minority and Women's Business Development (DMWBD) is the state's sole agency that certifies minority and women-owned businesses (MWBEs) for doing business with the state.

Companies interested in becoming MWBEs can apply online, and companies already certified can become re-certified through the DMWBD website.

In addition to certification, the DMWBD also provides other resources for MWBE firms, including training, education, outreach, and technical assistance.

Does this local/state program offer reciprocal certifications with other local/state programs? A lengthy list of the available methods for having certification by one New York entity recognized by DMWBD is provided on the website under provisions for new certification (https://esd.ny.gov/mwbe-new-certification).

How do I get re-certified? Businesses become eligible to re-apply for certification using the online system six months before the expiry of their current certification.
