About the Minnesota Technical Assistance Program
MnTAP staff members provide no-cost, confidential, industry-tailored technical assistance. By reducing waste and increasing efficiency, you can save on disposal and raw material costs and decrease regulatory compliance burdens. You also will create healthier and safer working conditions for your employees.
Established in 1984, MnTAP is funded in part by a pass-through grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Resource Management and Assistance Division to the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, Division of Environmental Health Sciences. Other grants come from partners including Minnesota Department of Commerce, Division of Energy Resources, Metropolitan Council, counties and other local units of government, EPA Region 5, and energy utilities. As part of the University, MnTAP has no regulatory responsibilities or obligations.
Each year, MnTAP publishes an Environmental Benefits Report, which highlights special projects and the organization’s overall achievements. This report is submitted to the MPCA.Read IMPACT
