Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR)
Grants to Wisconsin agencies, tribes, IHEs, school districts, conservation organizations, and individuals for projects and programs that train and educate new hunters and mentors. Priority will be given to programs geared towards females, adults, and families. The primary purpose of this grant is to ensure the education, training, and development of safe and ethical hunters and mentors.
Grant Program Priorities:
Other priorities may be determined by the WDNR Secretary and the Sporting Heritage Council.
To assist the expansion of statewide, inter-organizational efforts to train non-traditional audiences of potential hunters, WDNR offers a private-public partnership reimbursement grant program. The primary purpose of the Hunter R3 grant program is to provide cost-sharing grants to Wisconsin governmental units, colleges, universities or technical schools, school districts, Wisconsin tribes, conservation organizations, and individuals to ensure the education and development of safe and ethical hunters. It is necessary to work with partners to find a solution to ensure future generations of hunters will have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to become safe and ethical hunters. However, WDNR needs strategically developed, tested programs and results on which to base future program priorities. The Hunter R3 grant program will focus on developing and pilot-testing various programs and evaluating effectiveness of those programs.
