CMP Offers Youth Program Grants for CMP-Affiliated Clubs

The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is now offering financial assistance grants to CMP-affiliated groups that conduct youth marksmanship projects, activities, and events. Approved grants will be funded annually beginning in the fall of 2012. “We are very excited to announce the CMP Grant program,” said Christie Sewell, CMP North General Manager. “To support our mission, we look forward to helping deserving CMP-oriented youth marksmanship groups who are in need of a financial boost to get their projects off the ground,” Sewell said.

Project and Group Eligibility Standards for Grants
An eligible project must be youth-oriented. The project must benefit at least 7 juniors (under age 21) and the funds must be used for expenses related to juniors. The funds will be used for the related activity directly, such as, but not limited to housing, meals, match supplies, etc. Requests must be for “special projects” that are considered above and beyond routine marksmanship activities.

An “eligible group” is any organization affiliated with the CMP and they must submit an application for a grant for a qualifying project or activity. Applicants are expected to provide compelling reasons for requesting the grant and should include detailed descriptions and financial estimates required to carry out the activity, project or event. Activities and projects already sponsored by the CMP are not eligible for grant consideration. Applicants seeking to qualify for support shall not discriminate against persons on the basis of age, race, color, sex or national origin.

How to Apply for Youth Program Grants
Grant applications can be downloaded from the CMP Grants web page. Or, you can write to: Civilian Marksmanship Program, Attn: Grant Application Department, P.O. Box 576, Port Clinton, OH 43452. The deadline for submitting grant applications is September 1, 2012, and decisions on grants by CMP will be made within 30 days.
