Small and diverse business program: Meet our first RiSE certified business!

2021-01-07T17:05:48-08:00| Categories: Blog| Tags: |

We are excited to introduce you to the president and CEO of Live Electric, the first local small and diverse company to be certified for our RiSE (Resources, Involvement, Support and Education) program. This new venture aims to provide more opportunities on RTC-funded projects to small and diverse businesses in Clark County.

Live Electric has a lot more to celebrate. The company recently won the 2020 Nevada Contractors Association (NCA) Diverse Subcontractor of the Year award. We caught up with Live Electric President & CEO Heather Avila to get her thoughts on the program’s benefits and certification process.

To learn more about RiSE visit where a list of certified companies will be published so prime contractors and government entities have access to qualified firms. For the companies that are not quite ready to do work in the Public Works space, additional assistance is available through resources and trade partners.
