Hi Andy (and all),
Yes, NAAMP is a national program but each state has its own coordinator.
I'm coordinating for Vermont and, if you're interested, can help assign you
a route and answer any questions. For other states please visit the NAAMP
website and contact that state's coordinator.
I'm happy to answer other questions off-list.
