Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program
Richmond International Airport has a dramatic impact on Central Virginia’s regional economy. Play a part in our region’s growth by participating in our vendor program! We encourage small, minority- and women-owned firms to participate in business opportunities with the Capital Region Airport Commission.
Our Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Plan is governed by the requirements of 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 26. The Commission, owner and operator of the airport, does not certify firms, but accepts the certification of the Virginia Department of Minority Business Enterprise or the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. Certification by either agency is accepted throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.
To request information or a certification package, please contact the Virginia Department of Minority Business Enterprise at 1111 East Main Street, Suite 300, Richmond, VA 23219. Phone: 804-786-6585, Toll-free: 1-888-792-6323 or the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority's Equal Opportunity Programs Department, 1 Aviation Circle, Washington, DC 20001. Phone: 703-417-8625.
