Ed Boito is the new Small Business Ombudsman for DEP.  Ed started in early April, and will oversee the Small business Advantage Grant, as well as the Pollution Prevention Assistance Account low-interest loan program.  The Small Business Ombudsman provides free confidential environmental assistance to businesses with 100 or fewer full-time employees.  By law, the Ombudsman cannot reveal the identity of any small business who contacts the Office without their permission. All contacts are kept strictly confidential.

Prior to DEP, Mr. Boito co-owned a solar installation and energy efficiency consulting company in Harrisburg, held numerous positions in the private sector, and has worked for two large conservation organizations in Harrisburg, namely Citizens for Pennsylvania’s Future and the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association.
