Partnerships for P2 & Compliance Assistance

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description As a routine part of setting up and carrying out sector-based assistance, EPA Region 1's New England Environmental Assistance Team (NEEAT) forms partnerships with states and other agencies and industry/trade/professional associations whose membership includes a significant portion of the chosen audience. For outreach to municipal highway department vehicle maintenance facilities, NEEAT relies on the following primary partners:

-State P2 programs -State regulatory programs (i.e., hazardous waste, underground injection control) -Local technical assistance programs (LTAPs) funded by the Department of Transportation to support local highway departments -Interlocal Risk Management Trusts, the statewide insurance cooperatives that cover many municipalities -State Army National Guard vehicle maintenance facilities -State departments of transportation, where viewed favorably by local departments

NEEAT has found that to reach elusive audiences' small facilities that have little experience with Federal/State government, little familiarity with or sense of urgency about environmental issues, and a tendency to hide rather than step forward - the program needs to rely primarily on the partners who actually know the intended audience on a personal basis and routinely offers assistance to them. In the realm of municipal highway department vehicle maintenance facilities, these are the LTAPs.
