Partnerships Supporting Diverse Businesses

The Des Moines-based Director’s Council and the Financial Empowerment Center are taking applications to launch the Black Iowa Business Directory, an online platform allowing Black-owned businesses to list themselves for more visibility and allowing customers to search for Black-owned products and services. 

Business owners can apply to be listed online. Please note: This Directory is a self-identification directory and separate from the Targeted Small Business Directory. To continue to be eligible for State of Iowa procurement, the Targeted Small Business certification will be required.
