NSSF invites public and private shooting facilities to apply for up to $400,000 in grants that can assist in developing strategies to put more target shooters on their firing lines.
“We’re looking for unique proposals that motivate people of all ages to go target shooting and, when possible, to introduce newcomers to our sports,” said Melissa Schilling, NSSF’s director of recruitment and retention.
Owners and managers of target shooting facilities should review the range grant guidelines and, if they have qualifying programs, apply for assistance. Private shooting ranges must have a public participation option to qualify.
Shooting ranges applying for a grant can view case studies of previous grant recipients and learn more about NSSF’s Range Partnership Grant Program at www.nssf.org/shooting/grants.
All grant applications must be received by NSSF no later than 5 p.m. EST on June 1, 2012.
