Grants starting at over $25,000 to Minnesota local recreational shooting clubs that provide public access to trap shooting ranges. Proposals will be accepted until funds are exhausted. Funds will be provided groups operating existing ranges that are planning to expand, improve, or upgrade their ranges in order to accommodate young shooters.
A facility rehabilitated or developed with a grant must be open to the general public at reasonable times and for a reasonable fee on a walk-in basis. These grants are for installation of new trap fields, as well as rehabilitation of existing facilities.
For newly constructed trap fields, applicants need to provide documentation regarding compliance with the MN Wetland Conservation Act, as well as having local government zoning approval, in order to participate in this program. Additional site reviews conducted by the DNR will cover State Historical Preservation (SHPO) and Natural Heritage Program concerns, to ensure projects will not negatively impact cultural or biological resources.
Funding Priorities for Large Trap Range Grants:
1) To provide large scale grant awards for projects greater than $25,002 in size and scope.
2) To increase trap range capacity and access for youth trap teams and individual shooters from those teams.
3) To increase trap range capacity and access for youth in general.
4) To increase trap range capacity and access for adults.
