Affirmative Efforts

City of Newark Department of Development

Minority and Women Business Enterprise Affirmative Marketing and Outreach

The Newark Department of Development encourages minority-owned and women-owned business participation in the City of Newark’s HUD-assisted programs. We embrace the ideals of equal opportunity access and fair treatment in contracting and strive to maximize contracting opportunities for minority-owned and women-owned businesses.


City bids are openly advertised to all, submitted to plans rooms that in turn send the information out to their subscribers. The plans rooms can be accessed at: Construction Market Data

MBE-WBE and small business outreach information, including links to resources available can be found at the Ohio
Department of Administrative Services, Equal Opportunity Division (ODAS), the City of Columbus Diversity & Inclusion Supplier Diversity, the Central Ohio Minority Business Association, and the Good Faith Effort Help | Trade & Focus Journal.

Subrecipients of CDBG and HOME funds, contractors, and subcontractors, will be required to take affirmative steps to use MBE-WBE firms. The City will provide training, guidance, and information to Subrecipients about complying with MBE-WBE marketing, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements through the annual mandatory meeting and through regular correspondence that occurs throughout the program year.

Minority-owned and women-owned business owners, who wish to be placed on a mailing list for contracting opportunities involving the HUD programs, can contact the Department of Development at 740-670-7530.
