APGSA is a national membership organization of state administrators of public funds for problem gambling services.

APGSA was formed in 2000 to support the development of services that will reduce the impact of problem gambling in the United States.

Central to this mission, APGSA conducts the only national survey of problem gambling services in the United States providing information on funding, types of services, administrative structures, state profiles, and state contacts.

APGSA began conducting national problem gambling service surveys in 2006. Review here the 2013 survey, the fourth in the series and the first to be co-sponsored by the National Council on Problem Gambling.
