Shooting Range Grant Program

Counties, cities, villages, townships, other governmental agencies or units, clubs or organizations, businesses or corporations and educational institutions can apply for assistance in outdoor shooting range construction, including: backstops and berms, target holders, shooting benches, baffles, protective fencing, signs, trenches, gun racks, platforms, restrooms and other items considered essential for the project by the department. Indoor ranges may be eligible as well, including classroom, storage and restroom facilities.

This grant program is administered as a reimbursement program. This means you must incur and pay all costs associated with the project before seeking reimbursement from WDNR. No grant advances are possible. It is possible for grantees to request partial (quarterly) reimbursements of the WDNR during the life of the project. Please see the Shooting Range Grant Program Guidance and Application Instructions.
