In the Fall of 1999, EPA issued Aiming for Excellence, a report developed by the EPA Innovations Task Force to identify actions the Agency should undertake to accelerate environmental progress and encourage stewardship. One of the actions identified by the Task Force was the need to assess the value and accessibility of EPA's many hotlines, clearinghouses, and other support functions available for small businesses. At the recommendation of the Task Force, EPA's Small Business Division/Small Business Ombudsman inventoried the Agency's suite of environmental services for small businesses to produce this first edition of Environmental Assistance Services for Small Businesses: A Resource Guide. The Guide lists the many services available, including hotlines, clearinghouses, web sites, virtual assistance centers, training, television broadcast programs, publications, guidance documents, fact sheets, brochures, newsletters and many other printed communications. Additionally, state programs and trade associations provide a very important resource by working with EPA to help small businesses meet their environmental responsibilities efficiently and effectively.
