High School Trap League Grants

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department has been authorized to award grants to help facilitate the ND High School Clay Target League.

  1. Team support – The Department offers a grant option of up to $1,000 to new teams that have not received a grant in the past. This grant will be a 75/25% split. So if a team purchases $1,000 worth of gear, we will reimburse $750. This can be used to purchase gear/equipment needed for the team. Items such as eye protection, hearing protection, vests, shell bags, magnetic barrel rests, etc.
  2. Infrastructure – The Department offers range grants to clubs that offer high school trapshooting. Infrastructure needs are a significant expense, and we would like to see development of more shooting ranges. Allowable grant items here would be traps, trap houses, voice pulls, sidewalks for shooting, wiring of trap house, etc.

The Department also helps sponsor the ND High School Clay Target League state tournament. This sponsorship takes the place of grants to existing high school trap teams that Game and Fish had been providing through its Encouraging Tomorrow’s Hunters youth event/project program. ETH grants will still be used for youth hunting activities and other youth shooting activities that fall outside of the high school clay target league.

Note for 2018 - Existing teams that have received grant dollars in the past are not eligible to apply for grants this year. In exchange, Game and Fish will funnel those dollars into a significant sponsorship of the state tournament.
