In an effort to promote the use of local, minority, and women owned firms in EBDI-related projects, EBDI’s Economic Inclusion Team has developed a Local Vendor Directory that contractors, who are bidding on work in the EBDI footprint, can use as a resource to identify firms to help them meet EBDI’s economic inclusion goals.

CLICK HERE to access EBDI's latest Local Vendor Directory, last updated in September 2022.

If you are an M/W/LBE firm and you would like to be added to our Local Vendor Directory, please email us at
