Women and Minority business vendors

Chicago's Minority and Women-owned Business (M/WBE) Procurement Program demonstrates the City's continued commitment to the success of minority- and women-owned businesses. By promoting contracting opportunities to M/WBEs, the City's growth and economic stability is enhanced. Minority- and women-owned businesses wanting to take advantage of the opportunities afforded to them under the M/WBE program must be at least 51 percent owned and controlled by a minority or woman and be City-certified. City of Chicago certification is also accepted by other government agencies and some private agencies.
