State and Local Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program 

In this program, an overall participation goal of 27% of all public works projects funded by state and local dollars was established for State and Local Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program (SLDBE) certified firms.

The Office of Supplier Diversity for the City of New Orleans is now the custodial owner of all SLDBE-certified firms, their certification files, and any future certification applications. Visit their website for more information.

A firm is certifiable under this program if it is at least 51% owned and controlled by individuals who are socially and economically disadvantaged and where the firm is not dominant in its industry. There are no presumptions of disadvantaged status for any racial, ethnic group or gender. Each individual must supply evidence of both historic and continuing economic and social disadvantage. The burden of proof must be borne by the applicant. SLDBE Certification by the City of New Orleans is reciprocal for the SLDBE programs administered by the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans, Harrah’s Jazz Casino, and the New Orleans International Airport.


For information on the SLDBE Program and revisions to City of New Orleans Policy Memorandum 46R, please see the Creating Pathways to Prosperity for the People of New Orleans presentation.
