      </div>
      YOUR ID</b>  Kansas City, KS <br>
      <b>Sponsored by</b> Environmental Protection Agency <br>
      <b>Description</b>: <br>
      The National Agriculture Compliance Assistance Center (Ag Center) was
      developed by EPA=s Agriculture and Ecosystems Division in the Office of
      Compliance with the support of the United States Department of
      Agriculture (USDA). Coordinated from Kansas City, the goal of the Ag
      Center is to increase the level of environmental compliance by increasing
      the agricultural community=s understanding of EPA=s requirements and how
      to meet them. To achieve this goal, the Ag Center provides information to
      existing suppliers of information for producers of agricultural
      commodities and their supporting businesses to help them meet these
      requirements, prevent pollution before it occurs, and reduce costs
      associated with compliance by identifying flexible, common-sense ways to
      achieve compliance. <br>
      <br>
      The Ag Center provides the agricultural community with a definitive
      source for environmental compliance information by producing
      plain-language, user-friendly materials that are tailored to the needs of
      the agricultural community and which accurately reflect EPA=s position on
      compliance. By taking a multi-media, sector-based approach to
      environmental compliance, EPA seeks to ensure that the agricultural
      community has a sound understanding of its environmental requirements.

      accurately reflect EPA=s position on compliance. <br>
