​Types of Archery Grants ​

​Colorado Parks and Wildlife, in partnership with the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) ®, provides funding to K-12 schools in Colorado for their in-school archery programs. There are two types of grants available for schools:

New Program Equipment Grants ​offer funding for K-12 schools to purchase their first set of archery equipment to start a NASP certified in-school program. 

Equipment Maintenance Grants offer funding for K-12 schools that have an existing NASP certified in-school program to purchase replacement or additional archery equipment.  


Applications for the 2019-2020 school year will be available from September 23, 2019 to November 15, 2019 with recipients notified the beginning of December.
