Procurement

Allies for Community Business can help you secure your Women-owned Business Enterprise (WBE) or Minority-owned Business Enterprise (MBE) certification and can then help you secure contracts from our institutional partners.

We want to help you grow your business by connecting you with large purchasers such as government departments, hospitals, schools, and private corporations. We are constantly building relationships with institutional buyers who want to support our neighborhoods as they purchase what their organizations need.

If you are a minority- or women-owned business, we will help you secure the certification you need to bid for these contracts. We will then help you prepare to bid successfully. If you succeed, we can then provide ongoing coaching on managing these relationships and your cash.

The minority- or women-owned business certification we can help you secure are with the City of Chicago, Cook County, and the State of Illinois. Learn more at the links below:
