The Texas Unified Certification Program is a certification process for the Federal DBE Programs in Texas. A business' DBE certification is valid at any Texas entity that receives USDOT funds and has a DBE Program.
Small businesses desiring DBE certification must submit an application to one of six certifying agencies within the state. The business' location determines which agency to contact.
The City of Houston’s Affirmative Action and Contract Compliance Division is the certifying agency for the Houston region.
