Trap League, Shooting Range Grant Deadline

The deadline for clubs or communities interested in submitting an application to receive a grant to help support a local high school trap team, or for firearm and shooting ranges, is Oct. 1.

North Dakota Game and Fish Department education section leader Marty Egeland said the grant to support North Dakota high school trap teams are for infrastructure to support youth shooting.

“For example, this grant is intended to be used for trap throwers, trap houses, sidewalks and voice pulls,” Egeland said.

Firearm and shooting range grants can be used on projects that provide free public access, storage buildings, or on such items as berms, benches, target hangers and throwers.

“This grant encompasses any type of shooting range, with priority given to certain projects that you can find on the application,” Egeland said.

Interested applicants can print out the grant application online at the Game and Fish website, gf.nd.gov.
