Archery Range & Program Grant

Archery ranges and programs help increase recreational opportunities, create additional income for local businesses, promote partnerships with outdoor-related organizations, and boost bowhunting, archery participation and equipment sales.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the ATA’s Range & Program Grant recipients will receive their funds when the economic climate improves. We will announce the award recipients at that time.

The application window for the next round of program funding is also suspended until further notice. Your ATA values every applicant and hopes to distribute funds as soon as it is feasible. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this uncertain time.

*Disclaimer: The Archery Trade Association reserves the right to suspend and/or terminate the Grant Program, adjust the total amount of funding available, and correct any errors made in awarding Program funds, at any time.
