Grants of up to $50,000 to Arizona sportsmen's clubs and government agencies to boost the advancement and expansion of shooting ranges and to sustain their maintenance and operation. Funding is intended to enable hunters to become more proficient with firearms, promote safe hunting and shooting practices, provide Arizona residents with safe shooting (including archery) areas, and support law enforcement training.

Projects for development, redevelopment, relocation, noise abatement, improvements and purchases of capital equipment must have an expected useful life of five or more years.

Note: Acceptance of a grant requires that the range is made available for Arizona Game and Fish Department Hunter Education activities, hunter recruitment efforts, and activities that support the Archery in the Schools Program and Scholastic Clay Target Program.


The maximum grant award is $50,000 per project.

The funded project(s) must be completed within the 12 months of the fiscal year awarded.

Groups such as sportsmen’s clubs and government agencies are eligible to participate. If the applicant is not a government agency, the organization must demonstrate five years of successful range operation. Grants are for shooting ranges providing recreational public shooting. Privately owned and for-profit ranges are not eligible for this program.
