A Conversation with Banks and Agencies

November 20, 2019 | 8:30 am - 10:30 am

Event Navigation

The DDC, EDC, MTA and SBS have programs that allow MWBEs to finance contracts, which allow them to grow and build capacity. The PWC MWBE committee has brought these agencies together, alongside Banks they work closely with to discuss what’s working and how we can continue to find solutions for MWBEs in the construction industry. Join us to learn about these programs and also network with MWBEs who are growing capacity!
