The Utah Area Chapter of the Grant Professionals Association serves members from Utah, southern Idaho, northern Arizona, eastern Nevada, and southwest Wyoming. 
The Utah Area Chapter works to unite grant professionals to promote ethical standards, adopt best practices, and share knowledge.

We offer four professional development meetings each year for grant professionals. Training costs for Chapter members is only for the delicious boxed lunch provided. Others are welcome to join us for the price of lunch along with a nominal fee. Additionally we jointly host networking meetings every other month in connection with Grant Writer’s Collective. And finally, members are also alerted when their peers present grant training for partnership organizations like Utah Nonprofits Association and the Utah Society of Fund Raisers.
Events and meetings are scheduled yearly and advertised through the U-GPA newsletter. If you would like to receive these informative bulletins, please contact Emily Peterson at emily.peterson at We invite you to contact Emily with any questions you might have about U-GPA.
