SPRINGFIELD, Mo. --( National Hunting and Fishing Day (NHF Day) and the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative partnered to promote a grant program called the NHF Day Live It! grants.

With many applicants through the program, 13 were chosen to receive the Live It! Grants.

NHF Day and Yamaha strive to promote growth in conservation efforts through a wide range of projects. The deserving organizations of the Live It! grants are able to help further each of their program’s goal of connecting everyone to the outdoors.



NHF Day encouraged clubs, associations and agencies to submit detailed applications for their specific needs. A select committee reviewed each application and awarded grants to help fund deserving events. All events are National Hunting and Fishing Day focused and are scheduled to be hosted in September 2014.
