Scouts, NSSF Members to Benefit from Grants

Boy Scouts of America Councils that take up the challenge to develop or expand their activities in target shooting and marksmanship can receive a portion of $50,000 in grant funds provided by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. For the fourth year, NSSF is making challenge grants available to qualifying BSA Councils. BSA Councils applying for a grant must specifically use the funds for shooting sports programs and provide matching funds at least equal to the grant request. NSSF will provide funding to the first 25 qualifying applicants up to a maximum of $2,000 in matching support. Councils must use awarded funds toward the purchase of equipment and supplies for their shooting sports activities from an NSSF member retailer, a list of which is available at nssf.org/retailers/find. Applicants may view NSSF BSA Council Challenge Grant guidelines and application procedures at nssf.org/bsagrant. For information contact Melissa Schilling at NSSF at mschilling@nssf.org. Read the NSSF press release on the announcement of this grant program.
