Guardianship, Conservatorship, and Other Protective Arrangements Act


The UGPPA was approved by the ULC in 1982, and amended in 1989 and revised in 1997. Nearly 20 states have enacted one or the other version of the act. This Drafting Committee will revise selected portions of the UGPPA in order to implement some of the recommendations of the Third National Guardianship Summit and otherwise to update the act. The proposal to undertake this project has been endorsed by the JEB on Uniform Trust and Estate Acts.
