Disadvantaged Business Enterprise


Lake Tahoe Airport (TVL) is a participant in the USDOT Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program. 

As a part of the program, the Airport is developing a DBE participation goal for the projects listed below. In establishing the proposed goal, the Airport shall consult with minority, women’s, and general contractor groups as well as community organizations who can share information on the availability of disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged businesses, the effects of discrimination on opportunities for DBE’s, and the recipient’s efforts to establish a level playing field for the participation of DBE’s.


The City hereby announces its fiscal year 2017 goal of 3.5% for Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) airport construction Contracts. The proposed goals and rationale is available for inspection between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday at Lake Tahoe Airport 1901 Airport Road, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150 for 30 days from the date of this publication.
