Abstract: As part of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, the U.S. Congress required that each state establish a Small Business Stationary Source Technical and Environmental Compliance Assistance Program to assist small business in compliance with the Act. These programs are generally known as Small Business Environmental Assistance Programs (SBEAPs). EPA's Small Business Ombudsman must oversee the overall 507 program and be able to provide the Congress with periodical reports on the effectiveness, difficulties encountered and other relevant information about the program. Each state will submit requested information to EPA for compilation and summarization. This collection of information will assist the EPA Ombudsman with its requirement to monitor the effectiveness of small businesses as authorized under section 507(a), (d) and (e) of the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990, Public Law 101-549, November 15, 1990. Information that is collected is aggregated and is not of a confidential nature. None of the information collected by this action results in/or requests sensitive information of any nature from the states.

Form Numbers: 6500-03.

Respondents/affected entities: State and/or state appointed entities of the 507 program.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (section 507, parts (a), (d) and (e)).
