MidwayUSA Foundation Range Development Grant Program

The MidwayUSA Foundation Range Development Grant Program’s objective is to improve/expand existing ranges for the benefit of the community’s youth. While the grants are meant for MidwayUSA Foundation endowment holders, certain non-endowment holding organizations, primarily conservation groups and universities, may apply if they are directly benefiting local youth shooting teams and their associated range development grant will enable more youth to become involved in shooting sports.
