Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program

Blue Grass Airport has an ongoing commitment to partner with small, minority and diverse businesses. The airport is committed to its Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) program for businesses that are certified as socially or economically disadvantaged. Pursuant to 49 CFR Part 26, the airport has determined an overall DBE goal of 3.0% for the federal fiscal years that begin October 1, 2020, 2021 and 2022 (FY 21, 22, 23). This percentage results from the estimate of DBE participation we would expect in our FAA-assisted contracting programs absent discrimination.
