Public Parks and Recreation Archery Range Rehabilitation Grants Program

Program purpose:

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources created the Public Parks and Recreation Archery Range Rehabilitation Grants Program in 2015 to assist county, regional, and city recreation and parks agencies in supporting Minnesota's growing interest in archery.

Eligible projects:

Archery range rehabilitation must be done by a county, regional or city public recreation and parks agency in Minnesota for replacement and upgrading of target butts and frames to high quality target systems; acquisition and installation of safety signage and other range rule related signage based on safe design principles; acquisitions, materials, construction and installation of bow racks and ground quivers; and other items essential for maintenance and operation of a safe recreational archery range.

Projects must be completed before June 30, 2015. A certificate of general liability insurance coverage for the duration of the project must be provided to the DNR prior to full execution of grant agreement.

Who may apply:

County, regional, city, public recreation and parks agencies in Minnesota.

Level of assistance:

The DNR will determine how much money is available each year; currently the total is $25,000. Groups may apply for a single grant per grant cycle. Matching grants of $1,500 to $5,000 are available.
