In partnership with various certifying organizations, including the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the Kentucky Finance and Administration Cabinet, and the City of Louisville's Minority Business Enterprise Certification, the Kentucky Minority-Owned Business Database has now centralized the listing of more than 1,100 minority-owned businesses.
Many government agencies receiving federal dollars, major corporations, universities, and school systems have implemented Supplier Diversity Programs. These programs establish goals for the company or organization to award a percentage of their business to minority and women-owned businesses. Certification ensures the business is minority or woman-owned and not a misrepresentation designed to take advantage of the established procurement goals set by the organization.
Once minority-owned businesses get certified through at least one of the partnering organizations listed below, they will be included in the Kentucky Minority-Owned Business Database.
