Applying for the NRA Shooting Event grants administered by the Federation

The NRA State Committee in Vermont has funded NRA Day (formerly called Sport Shooting Camp) and Women On Target grants in the amount of $1,000.00 or $500.00 for each event held. For more specific information on what kind of events can be performed as an NRA Day, see Shooting Sports Camps (NRA has renamed this type of event to be "NRA Day" but has not yet changed the name on their web site.) . For more specific information on what a Women On Target event is, see NRA Women's Programs.

The funding for these events is provided from the profits from Vermont's six Friends of NRA Banquets.
