Welcome to Kentucky's Minority & Women Business Enterprise Certification Program
The Minority and Women Business Enterprise (MWBE) Certification Program encourages growth among Kentucky businesses owned by women and minorities and assists those businesses with expanding their markets. The certification also allows minority and women owned businesses to compete for work in states outside of the Commonwealth of Kentucky that require certification by a statewide body. The program is a critical component for creating, maintaining, and promoting Kentucky’s valuable women and minority owned businesses.
The Minority and Women Business Enterprise Certification Program, along with Kentucky’s SMALL BUSINESS CONNECTion Database, helps facilitate the development of women and minority owned businesses in Kentucky.
I commend you for your interest in this important program, and wish you well as you go through the process. Please know that staff members are ready and eager to assist you.
Governor Matthew G. Bevin
