Database access permissions as code

Does anyone know of any tools that let you manage data warehouse permissions as code (kinda like terraform for managing infrastructure)?

If you're using Snowflake, the excellent Chan-Zuckerberg terraform provider is a good bet.
We use this, paired with Atlantis for managing the pull request workflow (plan, approve,
apply).

Permifrost by the Gitlab team is also intended for this purpose, although I haven't tried using this one.

Thanks for the Chan Zuckerberg option, I hadn't heard of that and it looks spot on for my use case!
