The Federal 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments required states to establish a Small Business Environmental Assistance Program (SBEAP) to provide technical, administrative, and regulatory support for small businesses. The SBEAP staff serve as a liaison between the regulatory agencies and small business. The SBEAP does not have regulatory enforcement authority. Confidentiality is maintained when representing the interest of a small business. The types of assistance provided through the SBEAP include:

  • Informing businesses of requirements in the Act that apply to them as well as any applicable dates

  • Maintaining a list of affected industry for information distribution

  • Disseminating up-to-date information about the Act to the small business community, including easy to understand public information materials

  • Helping small businesses deal with specific technical, administrative, and compliance problems

  • Making necessary referrals

  • Providing training opportunities
