Disadvantaged & Minority Businesses

The Cedar Rapids Airport Commission (Commission) is committed to guaranteeing opportunities for disadvantaged and minority-owned business to participate in airport contracts. The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program is promulgated pursuant to 49 CFR Parts 23 and 26. It includes all contracts for construction, professional services, and procurement; which are funded in whole or in part by federal dollars from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). This also includes certain concessions operations at the airport. Two programs support that initiative.
