FACC was successful in its application for the Volunteer Sports Equipment Grant scheme of 2008. $2400 is now available to purchase new club paddles.

The grant scheme is administered by the Commonwealth Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs and provides funding for volunteer organisation to purchase small equipment to assist their volunteers.
