Business Assistance

Helping business do their part, the Office of the Ombudsman provides personal assistance on resolving compliance issues. The Ombudsman also helps businesses – especially start-ups and small firms – understand air pollution rules, navigate local air permitting, and find sources for financing pollution control equipment.

We can help

Technical or financial assistance is available when trying to comply with regulatory requirements. California’s Small Business Assistance Program can help guide you to the right resources and help you complete your permit and registration application forms.
