The AFF is delighted to announce the opening of Tranche 2 of the Project 5,000 Participation Grants Program, which will provide funding for targeted initiatives aimed at increasing participation in fencing. The program is being implemented as part of the AFF's strategic goal of achieving 5,000 'active members' (fencers affiliated at State level). 

The program will offer grant funding to clubs, State Associations and other eligible bodies to support activities which attract new participants to fencing. A total of up to $30,000 will be allocated during calendar 2018, subject to suitable applications being received. A maximum of $5,000 will be allocated to any one activity.

Fudning applications will be considered in three tranches during the year. Applications for Tranche 2 open on 5 May 2018 and close on 17 June 2018
