Strengthening the community also means working with minority- and women-owned business enterprises (MWBEs) and providing access to good jobs for local residents throughout the development process.
Opportunities for Minority Women Business Enterprises (M/WBE's)
We are committed to supporting MWBEs in Crown Heights, across Central Brooklyn and throughout New York City. Our team has committed to a goal of 25 percent MWBE participation for work throughout the development process.
Our team has already held numerous outreach events to meet with MWBEs and discuss contracting opportunities and how to prepare and apply for those opportunities. That outreach will continue and we look forward to meeting and engaging with more MWBEs.
We are committed to providing access to good job opportunities for local residents throughout the development process. Our team will be co-hosting a series of informational meetings on job opportunities with local officials and community groups.
We will also be utilizing employment programs provided by the City of New York, including HireNYC and Workforce1.
