EFC maintains a robust MWBE program that includes training, technical assistance and guidance for SRF recipients. EFC is also committed to creating opportunities for certified firms to participate on all SRF projects as both prime contractors and subcontractors. This website contains guidance materials for SRF recipients, contractors and subcontractors as well as copies of regulations and accepted utilization plans and closeout forms.
EFC's MWBE program complies with both federal and state regulations. Federal Disabled Business Enterprise regulations are found in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 33 and require SRF recipients to offer fair share opportunities for agreements and/or sub-agreements to disadvantaged, minority and woman-owned businesses.
The NYS law and regulations for Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises can be found in Executive Law, Article 15-A, and Title 5 of the New York Code of Rules and Regulations (NYCRR), parts 140-145. The NYS laws and regulations may be amended from time to time so the SRF recipients should check this website for new about any updates that may affect SRF requirements.
