Grants to Arizona nonprofit organizations and government agencies for the improvement and operation of public-access shooting ranges. Funding is intended to support programs to develop, enhance, and maintain recreational shooting and archery areas, increase user proficiency and safety with firearms and archery equipment, and assist with law enforcement training.
The Arizona Game and Fish Commission created the Shooting Range Development Grant Program in 1996 to encourage the development and improvement of shooting ranges and to support their maintenance and operation. This program provides support for the Department’s Hunter Education, Archery Education and the Scholastic Clay Target Programs (SCTP), encourages hunters to become more proficient with firearms, promotes safe hunting and shooting practices, provides Arizona residents with safe shooting areas and supports law enforcement training.
Shooting range program goals: To provide an environment for public enjoyment of the shooting sports that emphasizes safety, hunter education, firearms and public safety training, hunter sight-ins, juniors and new shooter education, and to be responsive, responsible members of ranges’ host communities. Our management priorities are safety, sound administration and operation, sanitation and community relations. “Shooting” includes archery, archery ranges and archery programs which are eligible for commission grants.
