This data set features businesses/individuals holding a DCA license so that they may legally operate in New York City. Note: Sightseeing guides and temporary street fair vendors are not included in this data set.
The City’s certification programs, including the Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) Program, the Emerging Business Enterprise (EBE) Program and the Locally-based Business Enterprise (LBE) Program certify, promote, and foster the growth of the City’s minority and women-owned businesses and eligible small construction and construction-related businesses. Companies that become certified obtain greater access to and information about contracting opportunities, receive technical assistance to better compete for those opportunities, and benefit from inclusion in the City’s Online Directory of Certified Firms. This list contains detailed information on certified companies, including a brief description of their work history, contact information, and detailed information about what the companies sell. This data is up to date as of the date reflected in the "About" tab of this dataset.
This data set features license applications received during the last and current calendar years, including applications where a license was issued, denied, withdrawn, or remains pending.

The food service concessions range from pushcarts selling hot dogs and pretzels to full restaurants. Recreational concessions include ice rinks, indoor tennis bubbles, stables, marinas, and much more.
This dataset features DCA licenses that have been revoked, suspended, or surrendered as well as licenses that have been reinstated, if applicable.
Licenses can be suspended or revoked for several reasons including, an order by the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings; non-payment of fines and/or fees; or not maintaining a license requirement such as a current driver’s license or insurance coverage.
Licenses are typically surrendered when a business closes, changes ownership, changes location, changes business name, or discontinues the activity that required the license.
Licenses can be reinstated based on appeal of a revocation, expiration of a suspension, or new application after surrendering it.
Each record in the dataset represents a time that a license was revoked, suspended, surrendered, or reinstated so a license can appear more than once.
This dataset can be linked to other DCA datasets using the DCA License Number column. This dataset cannot be linked to an administrative hearing decision or provide a specific reason for the change in status.
