  • Certification and Technical Support
  • Procurement Seminars and Workshops
  • Business Outreach and Networking Events

Business-to-Business Networking, Financial and Technical Assistance
Throughout the year, the Office of Business Diversity sponsors activities designed to assist in the nurturing and the development of small businesses. These events and specialized training programs include providing access to financing resources.

In the construction trades, the Office of Business Diversity has developed strategic partnerships with several organizations. The Regional Alliance of Small Contractors of New York and New Jersey is chief among them. This non-profit organization works with the Office of Business Diversity to offer project financing, access to loan programs and training workshops in topics related to the industry. At the request of the Office of Business Diversity, the Regional Alliance also provides information in the areas of bonding, project estimating, bookkeeping and marketing.
