Under the provision of section 409 of the Jeff Miller and Richard Blumenthal Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2016, new approval requirements are added to the statutory provisions for accredited and nonaccredited programs designed to prepare an individual for licensure and certification in a State. This provision also granted VA the authority to waive the added approval requirements under certain circumstances and adjusted the authority of a State approving agency to add new approval criteria. The new collection of information is contained in 38 CFR 21.4253(d)(9) and 39 CFR 21.4254(c)(14). This regulatory provision will permit VA to waive the additional approval requirements for educational programs that are designed to prepare individuals for licensure or certification in a State if it is determined that certain criteria are met. This collection of information is necessary to allow educational institutions to apply to VA, through their State approving agency of jurisdiction, for a waiver of the additional approval requirements. The State approving agency will forward the request for waiver, together with its recommendation for granting or denying the request, to VA. The Secretary or designee of the Secretary may grant a waiver upon a finding that the criteria have been met.
