Mission and Values

NACAA exists to advance the protection of clean air and public health, and to improve the capability and effectiveness of state and local air agencies.


  • An advocate for the protection of clean air and public health;
  • A provider of valued services and resources to the members;
  • A source of credible expertise to decision-makers;
  • A forum for learning with, and from, each other;
  • A point of focus for effective state and local agency interaction with the federal government; and
  • A national association that thrives because its members have common interests, while respecting one another’s differences.
