(This post is excerpted from an article in Thompson’s Local/State Funding Report. Subscribers can find the rest of the story in the Jan. 16 issue.) The Grant Professionals Certification Institute (GPCI) announced that 51 individuals recently received the Grant Professional Certified (GPC) credential. The credentials were conferred following exams in Ohio, Nevada and Washington, D.C. during the fall of 2011.

The certification program was established in 2004 by the Grant Professional Association to measure an individual’s ability to provide quality grant-related services within an ethical framework.

Designed to recognize excellence in grantsmanship, the GPC certification reflects the expertise and credibility of grantwriters and other grant professionals with a certain level of experience, skills and knowledge. Such professional certification benefits grantseeking organizations, the beneficiaries and clients of those organizations, the general public, government and would-be government regulators.

GPCI currently is in the process of converting the format of its certification exam from pen-and-paper to electronic. Once the conversion has been completed, which is expected by the end of this year, participants will be able to take the exam at hundreds of locations on multiple dates throughout the year.
