Commercial Use Authorization

The Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) program authorizes businesses to provide certain commercial services not typically provided by the concessioners. At Glen Canyon NRA, these services include vessel launching/caretaking/repair and guide services for hiking, fishing, hunting, kayaking and SCUBA. Commercial Use Authorizations are two-year permits granted through the Business Management Office. Certain requirements for insurance and certifications must be met and maintained.

The first step in obtaining a CUA is the submission of a CUA application request form (pdf file). For more information, please contact the Commercial Use Authorizations Coordinator at 928-608-6325.

Program Change:

There have been some program changes to the Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) Application process. There is now an "Open Season" for applying for a CUA. You will only be able to submit a CUA Application Request form between December 1st and March 31st. Application requests will not be processed after March 31st. Any requests received between April 1st and November 30th, will be held until the next "Open Season."


Due to our Permit Coordinator position being vacant, please allow approximately 4-6 weeks for applications to be processed. Thank You.
