Redefining possible. 
Fulfilling your company’s potential. 
Achieving success. 

It's all within REACH.

A comprehensive approach to ensuring our certified small and emerging businesses (SEBs) are ready to bid and capitalize on new projects – and reach their strategic goals. 

Free and open to all existing and potential small and emerging businesses. 


• Build capacity, break down barriers and increase opportunities for certified SEBs to serve construction-related and professional services companies

• Create a substantial group of certified SEB firms with acceptable credit and infrastructure that allows them to access financial resources and grow successfully

REACH is a collaborative effort, combining resources from many entities to help SEBs grow and prosper.
