“The trainings and workshops provided by the Contractor Development and Bonding Program (CDABP) have enabled me to learn important skills, build business confidence, and see more clearly what I am capable of achieving. I learned how to navigate the public contracting system, which included getting certified as a disabled veteran-owned business enterprise (DVBE) with LA Metro. CDABP also connected me with a lender who provided a line of credit to my business. It is an inclusionary program that benefits small and diverse businesses, our communities, society, and our country.”
