EPA Recognizes PA Small Business Development Center Environmental Help Program

On Thursday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency  presented its Fiscal Year 2015 EPA Administrator's Award for Outstanding Accomplishments by a Small Business Trade or State Small Business Environmental Assistance Provider Award to the PA Small Business Development Center Environmental Management Assistance Program

The award was presented at EPA’s 26th Annual Small Business Program Awards Ceremony in Washington D.C.

The Department of Environmental Protection provides funding to support EMAP in a longstanding partnership to provide environmental technical and compliance assistance to Pennsylvania small businesses, as required by the state Air Pollution Control Act and the federal Clean Air Act.

EMAP provides valuable services to help small businesses in Pennsylvania come into compliance with environmental regulations, stay in compliance, and even go beyond compliance to become more sustainable.

In 2015, EMAP provided environmental consulting assistance to 278 businesses in 50 of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties. EMAP staff conducted on-site assessment visits at 39 of these businesses.

A significant number of the businesses had complex and long unresolved issues that EMAP consultants were able to sort through to help the businesses thoroughly address their compliance issues.

Since 2004, EMAP has provided environmental compliance assistance to over 2,645 small companies and conducted 1,262 onsite visits.
