Recreational Archery Equipment Grants

We offer archery equipment kit grants to municipal parks and recreation departments. The 50-percent matching equipment grants are available on a limited basis and are limited to one grant per community. Grant recipients will receive an archery equipment kit sufficient to meet all of your programming needs (see kit contents below).

Recreation program leaders who successfully pass the USA Archery Level 1 instructor certification course will qualify their organization to apply for a DNR archery equipment grant.

To qualify for a grant a community must take the following steps:

  1. Retain a certified USA Archery Level 1 archery instructor on staff.
  2. Provide $1,500 in matching dollars to the DNR by submitting a donation form.
  3. Submit an archery education program plan.
  4. Submit a signed DNR Archery Equipment Grant Agreement.
