Our Mission Statement
The National Association of State Approving Agencies (NASAA) helps make the GI Bill® work. NASAA facilitates the efforts of its member State Approving Agencies in promoting and safeguarding quality education and training programs for veterans, ensuring greater education and training opportunities for veterans, and protecting the integrity of the GI Bill®.
NASAA works hand-in-hand with other organizations to make the GI Bill® the best possible educational assistance program for our nation’s veterans and their families. NASAA members work with government agencies, Congress, schools, and employers to ensure that veterans have access to well-managed, ethical programs they can trust to help them achieve their goals.
The National Association of State Approving Agencies (NASAA) is an organization comprised of the State Approving Agencies (SAAs) for each state plus several territories. There are a total of 53 SAAs. State Approving Agencies were established by Congress to work in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to ensure that education and training programs funded under the GI Bill® are of quality and represent value to veterans, their families, and dependents, and the U.S. taxpayers. This annual report summarizes the activities of NASAA in FY 2022.
