RULES OF CHALLENGE THE OUTDOORS--FIELD GRANT PROGRAM

VOTED IN MAY 20, 2014

 

The Field Grant Program is designed to aid only physically challenged members of Challenge the Outdoors, Inc. to experience a once-in-a-lifetime outdoor hunting or fishing event. This is                assistance for you.

 Field grants stipulations are…

·         Retroactive for those who already received grants from the beginning

·         Physically challenged paid-up- to- date disabled members only

·         Maximum of  ($200.00)

·         Maximum of three (3) times in a life- time

·         Only one in a year, for fishing and hunting only

·         Membership dues must be paid up to date

·         Be a member in good standing*

·         Cannot apply for a grant unless you are a physically challenged member of Challenge The Outdoors, Inc. for one full calendar year. (date starts when we receive your money for membership)

·         Must turn in receipts of the hunting or fishing trip  at the end of your trip; before receiving the Field Grant Money; all receipts including hunting or fishing license and/or receipt from outfitter from out of state.

·         Money will be paid after receipts are turned in and checked out at end of trip

·         You need to write a short story on your adventure for our newsletter; we all want to share your exciting adventure.

 

·         A Field Grant will not be awarded to an individual for participation in another organization’s event if Challenge The Outdoors, Inc. already conducts a similar event.  The Field Grant Committee and Board of Directors can consider an exception under special circumstances.  Persons that have received funds under the Challenge The Outdoors, Inc. Field Grant Program are not eligible for another Field Grant to participate in the same type of event in the future.  For example:  A disabled member of Challenge The Outdoors is awarded a field grant to hunt Pronghorn in Wyoming.  This member may not apply for another Field Grant to hunt Pronghorn in the future, and this means not in any other State or Country.  Also, we have white tail deer hunting here.

To be eligible to receive funding through this program, you must apply and fill out an application and we must receive it at least two months before you plan on leaving.  We need your application sent to one of the addresses at the bottom of the page. (The earlier is the best to send it out, so it doesn’t get delayed in the mail).

No precedents are set by the prohibited use of the Field Grants for Badger Games, Bowling, Clay Pigeon shooting or any other non- allowable use that has happened in the past.
