Maine Department of the Environment—1992
(Total funding: $683,353)

The Maine Environmental Partnership Program (MEPP) will provide comprehensive, multi-media prevention technical assistance to the regulated community and increase the cooperative interaction between the Department and the regulated community. The MEPP will expand staff training to include specific techniques on pollution prevention and pollution prevention programs such as 33/50; help small businesses contract for outside technical assistance which might otherwise not be available to them; and issue a quarterly newsletter designed to promote local pollution prevention activities and new Department issues.

Massachusetts Coastal Zone Management—1992
(Total funding: $436,500)

The proposed program will include both voluntary, technical assistance based activities and regulatory activities. The assistance efforts will include workshops and onsite technical assistance primarily in the greater New Bedford area. The workshops will promote source reduction and will educate generators regarding state and federal regulatory requirements for managing toxic wastes. Companies will be solicited for voluntary, onsite plant visits. The program, as proposed, will enhance and be reinforced by the state's ongoing toxic use reduction programs within the Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance (OTA) and the Department of the Environment (DEP) to cut hazardous waste generation in half by 1997. The project will also help local industries set source reduction goals to meet EPA's 33/50 Project goals.

Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management—1992
(Total funding: $432,237)

The purpose of this proposal is to go beyond DEM's base (non-regulatory) pollution prevention by demonstrating and evaluating the relative effect of regulatory, policy, and inplant technical assistance initiatives on source reduction practices in Rhode Island's textile industry. This grant will allow the State to expand and incorporate statewide pollution prevention activities that are technically sound into regulatory policy making and enforcement actions of State and local authorities.

Maryland Department of the Environment—1992
(Total funding: $400,000)

The Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) will incorporate prevention pollution into their strategic planning framework and develop the necessary associated policy guidance. Also, MDE plans to train staff to promote pollution prevention by (1) incorporating pollution prevention into permit and inspections; and (2) providing expanded technical assistance and outreach to the regulated community.

Illinois Environmental Protection Agency—1992
(Total funding: $406,945)

IEPA's Office of Pollution Prevention will provide the initial stages of training the basics of pollution prevention to mixed groups of agency personnel—various media, roles and management levels. Phase II of the training will take on a "Lead by Example" concept and then shift their focus to environmental impacts beyond the industrial sector.

University of Cincinnati—1992
(Total funding: $400,000)

This three year pollution prevention project conducted by the University of Cincinnati Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering will demonstrate prevention progress that can be achieved if a whole community focuses major and concerted attention upon implementing pollution prevention as its preferred waste management strategy. Target audiences identified for project activities are: business and industry, government and other institutions, and the general public. Goals of the proposal are to establish a mechanism to develop pollution prevention policies; develop methods to educate local business and industry leaders, and the public on pollution prevention concepts and their daily application; provide technical assistance to small businesses implementing pollution prevention programs; establish a program for city government as a model.

All Indian Pueblo Council—1992
(Total funding: $426,000)

The All Indian Pueblo council (AIPC), made up of nineteen Pueblos of New Mexico in a collaborative effort with the Pueblo Office of Environmental Protection (POEP) intends to create a pollution prevention/waste minimization program. The program will provide technical assistance on source reduction to businesses operating on Pueblo lands through: (1) development of institutional structures within the 19 Pueblo's governmental entities to ensure that pollution prevention is incorporated into decision-making and planning; (2) development of a multi-media effort that works in close coordination with State and Federal programs; (3) development of an outreach program targeted at industry, Tribal Offices, Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Indian Health Service, and consumers, emphasizing the benefits of pollution prevention; (4) development of a technical clearinghouse to provide educational and technical information, including the support of research, development and information; and (5) collection, dissemination, and analysis of data to evaluate progress in pollution prevention.

Colorado Department of Health—1992
(Total funding: $345,970)

Activities under this grant will involve a coordinated multi-media effort of all environmental regulatory divisions within the Department of Health (Air, Waste, Radiation, Hazardous and Solid Waste, Consumer Protection) and other state agencies such as the Department of Natural Resources, the Office of Energy Conservation, and the Department of Agriculture, local/county health departments, and local/county governments. Also, in this proposal, the Colorado Department of health plans activities to achieve overall reductions in emissions and waste in target industries and activities, leading to risk reduction for the state population and environment. One such activity is to coordinate and support the EPA's 33/50 Voluntary Reduction Program.

Montana State University—1992
(Total funding: $400,000)

This grant will create a Montana Pollution Prevention Task Force consisting of representatives of the MSU Extension Service, Montana Departments of Health and Environmental Sciences, Natural Resources and Conservation and representatives of the small business agricultural and environmental communities.
