Region 7 Air Program

Serving Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and 9 Tribal Nations


Small Business Assistance Program

The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 required that all States develop a program to assist small businesses in meeting the requirements of the Act. Such assistance includes, but is not necessarily limited to, adequate mechanisms to assist small businesses with compliance assistance, pollution prevention and accidental release detection and prevention, permit assistance and obligations. Section 507 of the Clean Air Act discusses specifics of the Small Business Assistance Program (SBAP). The SBAP is non-regulatory in nature and all services are confidential and free of charge.

The SBAP is divided in to three major components: the Compliance Advisory Panel, the Ombudsman, and the Assistance Program. Due to geography, demographics and the unique environmental issues in each state, the structure of each program may vary.
