We hope you received the letter yesterday from the Deputy Secretary of Transportation John D. Porcari regarding the Administrationís enhanced focus on Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) polices.

Attached, please find the follow-up letter signed by our Federal Transit Administrator Peter Rogoff that specifically speaks to the next steps grantees need to take, including DBE related data for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grants.

We are proud of what our grantees have already done to advance DBE involvement in transit projects across the country and together we can achieve even more.

For further information, contact Region 10ís Monica McCallum at (206) 220-4462 or email
