Minority and Women Business Enterprise Initiative (MBE/WBE) 

The Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC) Board of Commissioners approved a MBE/WBE Initiative with the 2012 Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP). The MBE/WBE Initiative was established to encourage the involvement and participation of businesses that are MBE or WBE certified under a business certification program by the state of Missouri, City of Kansas City, St. Louis Airport Authority or another certifying agency as deemed appropriate by MHDC in consultation with the Office of Equal Opportunity for the State of Missouri (OEO). 

This provision continues to be incorporated into each subsequent QAP, and shall be the governing language and guidance for MHDC’s administration and supervision of the MBE/WBE Initiative. Its components are paramount to MHDC’s effort to achieve diversity, increase support, and sustain MBE/WBE involvement in MHDC affordable housing production.
