NRA Law Enforcement Range Fund

The NRA Law Enforcement Range Fund was established in 2024 as a matching grant program to encourage city and county governments, and state or federal agencies, to work with NRA on efforts to build and improve law enforcement ranges across the United States. At the NRA’s sole discretion, grants are awarded to qualifying city, county, state or federal agencies to assist with the development and improvement of law enforcement firearms ranges. Grants are also awarded to assist qualifying agencies or local governments with projects designed to improve community relations and to address environmental issues related to range operations.


In reviewing grant applications, NRA Range Services and the NRA Law Enforcement Division will review the applications. Only projects that conform to these guidelines will be considered:

  • An applicant may be any city, county, state or federal government agency that plans to build or improve, or is currently building or improving, law enforcement firearms training ranges.
  • Grants are awarded on a 50/50 matching basis with 50% of the cost of the project being provided by the applicant and 50% awarded from the NRA Law Enforcement Range Fund. In-kind services of labor, materials, and equipment may be considered to provide the applicant’s 50% contribution to the project. Applicants must be able to guarantee their portion of matching funds thru a binding statement.
  • Applications will be processed on a rolling basis until funds have been exhausted each calendar year. Applications will be processed in the order in which they are received.

Projects and Activities Eligible for Funding

  • To build or improve upon existing law enforcement training ranges at the city, county, state, or federal level by providing assistance for construction, labor, materials, and equipment costs.
  • To provide assistance for the maintenance, security, and upgrades of existing law enforcement firearms training ranges at the city, county, state, or federal level.
  • Law Enforcement firearms ranges that are, or will be, utilized by multiple law enforcement agencies will be given greater consideration. Additionally, the law enforcement firearms ranges that allow civilian use, under the agencies' oversite, for such things as civilian concealed carry training, or general use by civilians, is also preferential.
