State/Local Meetup Grants:*
Recognizing the need for state specific training and networking, SUGA is offering State/Local Meetup Grants of up to $1,000.00 for individual state and/or local networking and training events. Meetup grants are designed to help you gain funding for meeting expenses. (There are currently 25 of these awards available.).

If you are interested in hosting a training/networking event for your state or locale you can apply online by clicking Here.

*Note: Enrollment in SUGA Programs and Services
Enrollment in any SUGA sponsored program or service requires a current SUGA membership at the Agency level. Therefore, enrollment by past SUGA users will automatically renew SUGA membership for that person’s Agency. You understand and agree that your use of said programs and services shall be treated as acceptance of an Agency-wide annual membership renewal.
