Grants averaging $5,000 to $6,000 to Idaho nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies for education and awareness about firearm safety and shooting sports. Funding is specifically intended to fund programs that instruct on firearm and hunting safety, history, marksmanship, and participation in the shooting sports.

In addition, the NRA Foundation Grant Program provides supplies, equipment, and financial support to a variety of programs geared towards youth, women, law enforcement, veterans, disabled, and the general public, including:

- General Shooting Programs
- Competitive Shooting
- Education, Training, and Safety
- Hunting and Conservation
- Community Outreach
- Range Improvement Projects
- Historical Education

The average NRA Foundation grant award is approximately $5,000 - $6,000.

Multi-year funding is not supported.

An applicant may be an incorporated or otherwise state-recognized nonprofit organization, 501(c) entity, or government agency, and must possess a unique Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) issued by the Internal Revenue Service.

Applicants shall not discriminate against any member, person, or other user of its facilities or equipment on the basis of age, race, color, sex, or national origin. Applicants are not required to be members of or have association with the NRA to receive funds under this grant program.

The following organizations are NOT eligible for grants:

- Labor organizations
- NRA Foundation State Fund Committees
- Friends of NRA Committees
- Private businesses and enterprises, including LLCs
- Other organizations or groups that have not been assigned a Federal Employer Identification Number by the - Internal Revenue Service
- Individuals

If your organization is not recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) entity, the project or activity for which you seek funding must provide a public benefit equal to or in excess of the amount sought. For example, if you seek funding to conduct a Women on Target event or to support a youth league, both of which are open to the public, the public benefit is clear. Public benefit may also be shown by qualified groups benefiting from the project or activity. For example, a project or activity that provides a benefit equal to, or in excess of, the amount sought to the Boy Scouts, a school, a local law enforcement agency, a veterans group, a church, or other qualified groups may meet this requirement – a requirement likely easier met when your organization provides free access to such groups, as our applicants generally do. Similarly, projects or activities that further amateur sports competitions may meet the public benefit requirement. Please note, however, that simply being open to the public, and charging the public for use, does not provide a public benefit.
