Get Connected – GRANTZONE

Your GPA membership provides you with access to GrantZone – a place to participate in discussions, ask questions of other GPA members, and share resources. Each NJ Chapter member is automatically a member of the New Jersey Chapter Community. You can join other communities, like Grant Consultants, K-12 Education, Healthcare, and many more.

It’s a fantastic resource and easy to use. You can access GrantZone from the GPA website, or go directly here and enter your GPA username and password. Members can control the frequency of messages they receive (real time, daily digest, no email). If you aren’t seeing any messages, check your settings as well as your spam folder.
