Monroe County Friends of NRA Grants

The Monroe County Friends of NRA (National Rifle Association) hosts an annual Friends of NRA banquet in the fall. Each year, The NRA Foundation allocates half of all net proceeds to fund projects within the state in which the money was raised and uses the other half to fund similar projects with a national scope. The Monroe County 4-H Shooting Sports program benefits from this competitive grant process.

Committee volunteers are appointed to State Fund Committees to make recommendations for local grant funding in areas such as youth firearm safety and education programs, hunter education, range development and improvement, women’s training seminars, and wildlife conservation efforts. Recognizing that America's young people represent the future of the shooting sports, State Fund Committee grants are frequently given to youth programs, allocating more than 50% of grant monies to this important area.

Adult Volunteers Needed:

Are you interested in being certified to help teach youth about shooting sports? Monroe County is in need of adults to attend the Ohio 4-H Shooting Sports training and be certified in archery, rifle and shot gun. Contact Cheryl Goodrich at goodrich.49@osu.edu for more information.
