What We Do
Midwest Assistance Program (MAP) offers communities and tribal nations a wealth of skills and approaches to help them creatively solve their problems.
Areas of Expertise
Water and Wastewater
Faced with compliance, pollution, and management issues, communities turn to MAP, an established expert in water systems and wastewater treatment. Not only can MAP link them to sources for funding, they find creative solutions customized to each town's immediate infrastructure rehabilitation or replacement needs.
Without a solid waste management plan and a commitment to implementing it, communities can be buried under a mountain of garbage and be out of compliance with local, state, and federal regulations. When communities and tribal nations want to dig out, MAP can help in a variety of ways from assessing needs to developing a recycling program.
In all areas of our expertise, MAP provides training at a variety of levels, including but not limited to:
- Developing capacity for town councils, rural water/sewer districts and tribal entities to operate their utilities more effectively
- Preparing water and wastewater system operators for certification
- Planning for emergency response and disaster prevention
Training is done one-on-one, as well as in groups. Annually, MAP conducts nearly 100 training sessions, reaching more than 2,000 participants from communities and tribal nations.
MAP is dedicated to working side-by-side with small, rural communities and tribal nations to find creative, innovative and local solutions to their problems. MAP helps communities find solutions in the areas of capacity building, compliance, disaster management, management and finance, operations and maintenance, planning and development, and much more.
