The NRA Foundation is happy to announce that the 2022 NRA Foundation State Fund Grant application is now open! The NRA Foundation provides financial support to eligible projects, programs, and organizations through the state fund grant program. Friends of NRA each year, through volunteer committees from across the country, tirelessly raise charitable dollars and generous donors make gifts that are in turn awarded as grants in support of educational and public service programs relating to the shooting sports in our communities.
The general focus of Foundation state fund grants is to:
Promote, advance and encourage firearms, shooting sports and hunting safety
Educate individuals with respect to firearms, firearms history, participation in the shooting sports, hunting safety, and marksmanship
Conduct research in furtherance of improved firearms safety and marksmanship facilities and techniques
Three fourths of state fund grants are awarded to youth programs, such as Scouts, 4-H shooting programs, ROTC/JROTC cadets, and the Scholastic Clay Target Program, to assist with equipment and supplies. The remaining State Fund Grants are awarded to various programs such as Law Enforcement agencies, range improvements, women-focused clinics, hunter safety, and firearms and marksmanship training.
