Welcome and thank you for your interest in applying for certification with The Port Authority of NY & NJ. We administer the following certification programs:

  • Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (MWBE)
  • Small Business Enterprise (SBE)
  • Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)
  • Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE)

Once certified as an MWBE or SBE, a business is eligible to participate in our supplier diversity program, which offers unique opportunities for qualified firms such as set-aside contracts and vendor price preferences on commodity and operations services. Subcontracting opportunities are also available for MWBE firms in various procurement categories.

The Port Authority is a certifying partner in both the New York State and New Jersey Unified Certification Programs, and as such, certified DBEs have subcontracting opportunities on federally funded projects in both New York and New Jersey. Our international airports offer retail opportunities to certified ACDBEs.

If your firm is a new MWBE applicant, we offer a one-stop certification application process in collaboration with Empire State Development, Division of Minority and Women’s Business and The New York City Department of Small Business Services, Division of Economic and Financial Opportunity. Please fill out their respective addendums when prompted in the document checklist once you have begun our MWBE certification application.

To continue, please select one option below:

Please select Option 1 if your firm has never been certified with the Port Authority.

Select Option 2 if your business has been certified under any of our programs. This option allows you to apply for additional certifications and recertifications, as well as renew your business status.

If you require technical assistance while completing the application, please use our online support form.
