Veteran Outreach Understanding To Reach Every American Courageous Hero Act or the Vet OUTREACH Act

This bill authorizes state approving agencies (SAAs) to conduct outreach activities to increase awareness of education and training opportunities available to veterans if funding is available, and the SAA has properly conducted its enforcement and approval of education programs. SAAs are state agencies responsible for approving and monitoring education and training programs for veterans who are using Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits.

Under the bill, the SAA shall be considered to have properly conducted its enforcement and approval duties if it has fulfilled its VA cooperative agreement requirements and has completed a risk-based program review of any program determined to be of questionable quality or at risk by government or accrediting agencies.
