Funding is intended for equipment and supply purchases, educational programming, conservation efforts, and facility improvements.

The State Fund Grant Program

The State Fund Grant Program allows The Foundation to provide supplies, equipment, and financial support to a variety of qualified groups and programs at the local level; geared towards youth, women, law enforcement, veterans, the disabled, and the general public, including:

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

Grant requests must conform to, and foster the purposes in, The NRA Foundation’s mission statement, such as:

  • Promote, advance, and encourage firearms, the shooting sports, and hunting safety.
  • Educate individuals, including the youth of the United States, with respect to firearms, firearms history, participation in the shooting sports, hunting safety, and marksmanship, as well as with respect to other subjects that are of importance to the well-being of the general public.
  • Conduct research in furtherance of improved firearms safety and marksmanship facilities and techniques.
  • Support activities of the National Rifle Association of America, to the extent that such activities are in furtherance of charitable, educational, or scientific purposes within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code which includes activities that are charitable, educational, or foster National or International sports competition.

Capital Improvement Projects

Any request to support a project that seeks to improve a facility is considered a capital improvement. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Berm improvements
  • Clubhouse/Classroom facility improvements
  • Shelter structures/covered firing lines/pavilions
  • Road improvements
  • Commercial-grade trap machines (see section regarding trap machines, below)
  • Any other permanent improvement to an organization’s property or facility

*Please note that requests for items such as portable shooting points, like those used by JROTC units for air rifle training, are not considered to be a capital improvement.

Grant Requests which include Trap Machines

The NRA Foundation considers requests for certain trap machines to be a capital improvement to the facility. Specifically, requests for commercial grade trap machines that are designed to be a permanent fixture at a facility (regardless of their portability).
