FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Small businesses are gaining a new path to become involved in federally funded transportation projects in Kentucky.

Gov. Steve Beshear’s office says the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has established a Small Business Enterprise program within the existing Disadvantaged Business Enterprises program.

The cabinet will set a participation goal for small businesses for each transportation project assisted by the Federal Highway Administration and of at least $2 million.

Small businesses will have goals for projects in addition to disadvantaged business goals.

For more information, contact the Small Business Development Branch of the cabinet’s Office of Civil Rights and Small Business Development at (800) 928-3079 or (502) 564-3601, or online at https://transportation.ky.gov/Civil-Rights-and-Small-Business-Development/Pages/SmallBusinessHome.aspx .
