TxDOT’s Alliance Program works to increase the participation of disadvantaged business owners in the highway construction industry. The Program provides Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs) with firm-specific training and guidance to help them become competitive within the heavy highway or construction industry. TxDOT’s Alliance Program prepares DBEs to move into nontraditional areas of work and to compete in the marketplace outside the DBE program.

The Alliance Program provides networking opportunities, project-matching assistance between subcontractors and primes, and access to training in the areas of business development, business management, and construction management. Services include:

  • Classroom and workshop components
  • Technical assistance
  • Vendor events
  • Industry partnering at the local, state, and federal levels

To apply for TxDOT's Alliance Program, complete TxDOT Form 2686, Civil Rights Division Supportive Services Needs Assessment, and click "Submit by Email." One of the current service providers will contact you regarding approval and to set up your individualized training program.
