Shooting Range Small Grants Program Proving to be Right on Target

Brought to you by:

Efforts continue to assist and improve public access to non-profit shooting ranges across New York

In 2013, the DEC in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Saratoga County launched the Shooting Range Small Grants Program. This federally funded program, intended to assist non-profit organizations and municipalities with improvement projects for shooting ranges and related facilities, has proved to be a success in supporting recreational opportunities for sporting communities across the state.

This is a matching grant program where each successful applicant will be responsible to provide a match of at least 25 percent of the total project cost. During 2013, DEC awarded grants to 13 shooting ranges to revitalize and improve their operations and public access while promoting the responsible use of firearms and archery equipment. Application period runs from March through mid-May.

EXAMPLES OF ELIGIBLE PROJECTS

  • Range safety improvements to baffles and/or berms
  • Lead management plan/system
  • Upgrades to comply with A.D.A standards
  • Archery range development
  • Shot recycling and/or shot screens
  • Skeet and trap houses
  • Shooting stands, indoor ranges

EXAMPLES OF INELIGIBLE PROJECTS

  • Routine maintenance (painting, mowing etc.)
  • Targets
  • Firearms, airguns, and bows
  • Shooting accessories
  • On-going operation costs (utilities, taxes, etc.)
  • Office equipment or uniforms
  • Ammunition
  • Security systems
