National 507 Program

What is the 507 Program?

Section 507 of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) requires each state to establish a Small Business Stationary Source Technical and Environmental Compliance Assistance Program (also known as "507 Program," and/or "Small Business Environmental Assistance Program"). Section 507(d) charges the EPA Small Business Ombudsman with monitoring and reporting on the overall effectiveness of the Program.

The Program consists of three components:

  • 1) Small Business Environmental Assistance Program (SBEAP);
  • 2) Small Business Ombudsman (SBO); and
  • 3) Compliance Advisory Panel (CAP).
