NSSF Renews Support for IHEA-USA

The IHEA-USA is excited to announce a renewed relationship with NSSF, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, that gives the IHEA-USA funding for 2023 initiatives as well as additional educational tools for its Hunter Education Classrooms and the IHEA-USA Firearms Fundamentals Course.

This partnership also allows the IHEA-USA to continue promoting safe hunting and shooting initiatives in 2023 and the development of its new mentoring platform,

Executive Director of the IHEA-USA, Alex Baer, stated, “After another successful and exciting year, we feel fortunate that industry leaders such as NSSF are responding with valuable support and interest in our mission.  We welcome like-minded organizations such as NSSF to help us deliver state agency education teams and their volunteers the tools they need to ensure safe, responsible, and ethical lessons are brought to the next generation of hunters and shooting sports participants.  We look forward to promoting their programs to our audiences, and we are grateful for this relationship.”

“IHEA-USA and its tens of thousands of instructors play a vital role in educating new hunters and shooters across America,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF President and CEO. “NSSF is proud to support this important organization while also providing our resources in helping to educate hunters and shooters on the importance of firearm safety and secure firearm storage.”

NSSF’s support allows the IHEA-USA to continue to create and deliver hunter education standards and content for state fish and wildlife agencies that execute programs teaching safe hunting and firearm handling. New research and innovation in continued hunter and shooter education also benefit from this patronage.
