National Shooting Sports Foundation

NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry, 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.

By providing this funding to qualifying ranges, NSSF’s Range Partnership Grant Program will continue to help these local businesses remind firearms owners, particularly the millions who have purchased new firearms in recent years, to take advantage of the training and safety services they provide. This marks the fifth year for the NSSF range grant program.

“Our surveys tell us that people nationwide are purchasing firearms in record numbers, and that they are enthusiastic about target shooting. We want ranges to tap into that enthusiasm,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “These grants will help shooting-range managers test new initiatives to attract customers.”

Owners and managers of target shooting facilities should review the range grant guidelines and, if they have qualifying program, apply for assistance. Private shooting ranges must have a public participation option to qualify.

“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.

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 http://nssf.org/shooting/grants.
