4-H Shooting Sports Challenge Grant

4-H Shooting Sports +ONESM Movement Challenge Grant 2019

4-H Shooting Sports / +ONESM Movement Challenge Grant


The 2019 4-H Shooting Sports +ONE Movement Challenge Grant money has been exhausted.

A new grant will be made available this coming  Spring 2020


The National Shooting Sports Foundation has created a grant program to support 4-H Shooting Sports clubs with recruitment and community outreach efforts. The funding encourages use of NSSF’s +ONE Movement—a mentoring program that provides an introduction to target shooting or hunting.

Who may apply?

Only grant applications submitted by and in the name of 4-H Shooting Sports clubs specific to providing recruitment and community outreach efforts.

To be eligible for funding, the NSSF grant funds must be used for:

  • Building upon current 4-H shooting sports club activities to increase shooting sports participation among its members, family and friends and within the community. Activities must involve the use of and or introduction to firearms with an emphasis on firearms education and safety.
  • Promoting the NSSF’s +ONE Movement initiative by hosting an event or series of events that introduces or reintroduces people to hunting or target shooting. The +One Movement was created with a simple premise in mind – take one person to the range or in the field to experience the thrill of target shooting or hunting and we’ll secure a strong future for generations to come.
    • One idea would be to host a +ONE Challenge Event – have your club members bring one person to the range to shoot, let us know how many people participated!
    • Another idea – host a First Shots® event! Invite family & friends of your club members to come take their first shots with you.  We’ll help by supplying you with participant materials!

How Much Grant Funding is Available?

A total of $50,000 will be available to qualifying 4-H Shooting Sports clubs for the purpose of current 4-H shooting sports club activities to increase shooting sports participation among its members, family and friends and within the community. The amount of funding that qualifying applicants may be awarded shall be at the sole discretion of NSSF. NSSF’s award decisions are final and non-reviewable.
