2012 Iowa Scholastic Clay Target Grant Program
Posted: 08/28/2012
The purpose of the Iowa Scholastic Clay Target Grant program is to help establish and commit school-based clay target shooting programs in the state of Iowa. Successful applicants will be eligible for 50 percent match funding for up to $5,000 per year for two consecutive years. After two years of consecutive funding, organizations are not eligible to re-apply. 

The number of grants issued and amounts each year will be dependent on funding available to Iowa SCTP, Inc., the number of applicants, total grant score and the strength and feasibility of each application as determined by the Iowa SCTP, Inc. board of directors.

Grant eligibility will be limited to Iowa-based public or private high schools and middle schools that are entering their first, second or third year of participation in the 2013 Iowa High School and Scholastic Clay Target Program season. Non-profit corporations may apply on behalf of the school.  Grant applications must be received by December 1.
