GPCI® is an affiliate organization of Grant Professionals Association (GPA) which, since its inception has been dedicated to establishing a valid credentialing process for grant professionals. To this end, and in keeping within the ideal parameters for psychometric testing, GPA created GPCI®, an independent body to oversee its credentialing initiative. While GPCI® is considered an affiliate of GPA and shares GPA’s vision and mission, it is governed by its own board and maintains its own corporate identity.
