Business Development Program
IDOT is committed to providing support and development to DBEs in Illinois. The Foundation for Growth Business Development Program is a program designed to evaluate and provide a structured process for DBEs to receive firm-specific training and guidance to assist in their growth and competitiveness within the transportation industry. The program will provide each DBE firm with a full business analysis, tailored targeted training that may be eligible for reimbursement, and a host of other opportunities to increase the competiveness of the participants.
Firms who are interested in the Business Development Program must complete the Needs Assessment (required for all DBE firms seeking Supportive Service assistance) and check the box regarding interest in the BDP. To access the needs assessment click here.
Applications will be accepted for the FY 2015 Program until November 30, 2014. If you have any questions, please contact Dana Goodrum at (217) 524-7793.
