Environmental Assistance Network

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description In New York State several state agencies and other organizations operate a network, known as the New York State Environmental Assistance Network, for the purpose of strengthening and improving the delivery of environmental services to NYS businesses. This network is a product of several years of effort begun in 1997 with support from the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Coordination was initially provided through the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP). A planning group consisted of representatives from several MEPs, the Department of Environmental Conservation, Empire State Development, Governor's Office of Regulatory Reform, Environmental Facilities Corp., and the NYS Energy Research and Development Authority. This group met quarterly for approximately two years, developing a mission statement and project goals and tasks to support the establishment and continued operation of the network.

While the planning group developed a number of activities to meet both short- and long-term goals for the network, including coordination of partner activities, training, and collaboration, the most notable product of the network has been a directory of NYS Environmental Assistance Providers. The directory was published in August 1999 and contains contact information for over 90 entities in federal, state, and local government; colleges and universities; interstates; and trade organizations that provide compliance and technical assistance to businesses in New York State. The directory also contains detailed information on the types of services provided, industry sector expertise, and publications available from almost 40 of the listed providers. The directory is very popular and has been distributed in hard copy. It is also available on the Pollution Prevention Unit's website:dec.state.ny.us/website/ppu
