2023 Hunting Heritage Trust Grant Recipients



In partnership with the Hunting Heritage Trust, NSSF has created a million-dollar grant program in support of hunting and the shooting sports recruitment, retention and reactivation efforts; known as R3. Programs will be considered that emphasize and support initiatives to provide shooting sports and hunting opportunities with a focus on non-traditional participants.


Only project proposals submitted by and in the name of non-governmental organizations (NGO) shall be eligible for funding under the Grant Program. Project proposals from organizations other than non-governmental organizations (NGO) will not be accepted.


A total of $100,000 will be available to qualified NGOs for the purpose of supporting projects/programs designed to recruit, retain and reactive (R3) hunting and shooting sports activities. Programs will be considered that are emphasizing and supporting initiatives to provide shooting sports and hunting opportunities with a focus on an incremental increase of non- traditional participants. The amount of funding that selected applicants may be awarded shall be at the sole discretion of National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). NSSF reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate the Grant Program, adjust the total amount of funding available under the Program and correct any errors made in awarding Program funds, at any time.
