Advocacy Resources

Advocating for financial aid has been and continues to be an important part of what we do as members of MSFAA. Sometimes it is hard to know where to get started. Here are a few resources to help:
  • Contact your legislators. If you don't know who they are or how to contact them you can use several search tools. One is located at
  • NASFAA Advocacy Resources. Whether you are planning a rally or would like to visit your representatives NASFAA provides many helpful tools to do so. Visit for more information.
  • As the Higher Education Act (HEA) reauthorization process continues, proposals abound from the various entities that have a stake in higher education. It is imperative to show lawmakers that institutions of higher education are forward-thinking, interested, and invested in improving student access, success, and outcomes. Visit the Forward50 site and submit your comments.
