USDOT Small Business Transportation Resource Centers
The Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) established the Small Business Transportation Resource Centers (SBTRCs) through a network of grantees across the country. The SBTRCs work closely with the transportation contracting community and other technical assistance providers to serve small disadvantaged transportation businesses.
SBTRCs administer the USDOT Bonding Education Program (BEP), assist with identifying access to capital, and implement USDOT’s Women and Girls in Transportation program (WITI). Utilizing partnerships and industry expertise, SBTRCs provide business counseling that includes market research, training, certification, and procurement technical assistance. All services are provided free of charge.
