PLANO, TX – The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) won the Regional Hispanic Contractors Association’s (RHCA) “Public Entity of the Year” award at the association’s 12th annual Pillar Awards March 1 in Dallas.

NTTA works closely with the RHCA, other regional contractor associations and qualified disadvantaged, minority-owned and woman-owned business enterprises (D/M/WBE) through its Business Diversity Department.

“We design our business diversity programs to identify and strengthen D/M/WBEs,” said NTTA Business Diversity Director Moses Aito. “We are honored the RHCA has recognized us for producing great partnerships.”

NTTA faced formidable competition in the category, including: City of Arlington, UNT Dallas, Trinity Metro, Dallas Area Rapid Transit and Dallas ISD.
