NSSF Hunting Heritage Grant Program Now Open for Application

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that its newly established million-dollar grant program is now open for application.

Established in October 2018, and funded equally by NSSF and the Hunting Heritage Trust, this first-of-its-kind grant program works to support hunting and the shooting sports recruitment efforts. For 10 consecutive years, beginning in 2019, organizations meeting eligibility requirements may apply for a portion of each year’s total annual $100,000 grant to be used to support recruitment, retention, and reactivation programs, known collectively as R3 efforts. While all organizations with formalized R3 programs will be considered for each year’s award, there will be an emphasis on those programs focusing on youth and non-traditional participants.

“The program is designed with a singular focus in mind,” says Joe Bartozzi, NSSF President. “The implementation of R3 efforts that produce tangible, measurable results, especially among those market demographic segments that are underserved. This is an unprecedented opportunity.”
