DBE Reimbursement Program

IDOT offers 50% reimbursement to qualifying firms while funds are available. Eligible DBEs are allotted one reimbursement per quarter. DBEs are capped at a total of $1,500 per year, and funding is not guaranteed.

Qualifying criteria for DBEs

Firms certified through IDOT can apply to be reimbursed for purchases already made in specific categories:

  • Association/organization membership costs
  • Training or certification class
  • Website, capability statement, logo*
  • Audited financial statement
  • Estimating software (every two years)
  • Accounting software (with payroll component)

*Vendor used for this category must also be an Illinois-certified DBE

Enrich your business with these limited-time funds

Opportunities are limited, and this program is only offered while funds are available. We advise firms to not make any purchases under the assumption that reimbursement is guaranteed.
