This NAHP guide outlines the process of implementing the Native American Hiring Provision from project identification through construction. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), contractors, and the tribe each have specific roles and responsibilities with the NAHP. The purpose of this guide is to provide the tribe with key information that will help streamline communication and lead to successful implementation of the NAHP. This guide is for any tribal staff who will facilitate implementation of the hiring provision, including Tribal Leadership, Human Resources, Labor Development, and Roads Departments.


The DBE program started with Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982, which set a national goal of placing at least 10 percent of federal highway and transit funds with persons who qualify as disadvantaged small business operators. A subsequent act in 1987 included women.

WisDOT invests $600-700 million annually in federal and state dollars for highway, airport and transit projects. These funds translate into millions of dollars in transportation-related contracts and project work for DBE firms.  Further information can be found at the following website.
