New York City recently announced that it was officially recognizing businesses owned by LGBTQ people as part of their minority & women-owned business enterprise (MWBE) programs. The decision will allow businesses of all sizes owned by LGBTQ people to access billions of dollars in city contracts, contract procurements, and opportunities, in addition to accessing priceless resources for historically disadvantaged enterprises in New York City. An agreement was made between New York City’s Department of Small Business Services (SBS) agency and the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), and it will allow NLGCC-certified business operators to receive official recognition for their MWBE. The partnership will allow NYC to “fast-track” applications to certify LGBTQ-owned businesses and get them assistance as the country enters the second year of the coronavirus pandemic.
In this FREE workshop, learn how to get certified and the benefits that come with certification. Presented by Pride Premier Sponsor TD Bank in partnership with The LOFT and NGLCC.
