Archery Equipment Grants for Schools

​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 has ended. Recipients will be notified at the beginning of December.
