Dear NRA Member,
You are invited to join Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to announce the disbursement of the Pittman-Robertson grants to Wisconsin. This year the grants total over $1.1 billion. Wisconsin will be receiving a check for $34,966,603.
Background on Pittman-Robertson grants:
Pittman-Robertson grants are funded by an excise tax on long guns, hand guns, ammunition and archery equipment. It is paid by hunters, manufacturers, producers, and importers and applies to all commercial sales and imports, whether their purpose is hunting, sport shooting, or personal defense. The grants must be used by the state’s fish and game department, require a match of 25% non-federal sources and can be used for management of wildlife/habitat, the construction of public shooting ranges, hunter safety education and other conservation efforts.
