The ACA Adaptive Paddling Program and the USACK Paracanoe Program Work Together
As part of our USACK / ACA partnership, in the summer of 2015, we have recently applied for and just received two grants targeted specifically for individuals with disabilities including one grant that has an elite level Paracanoe competition focus.
• Craig H. Neilsen Foundation - $123,460.00
• Department of Veteran Affairs - $149,133.85
Total funding: $272,593.85
We are looking for local paddling clubs across the country who are interested in either starting or expanding their adaptive programs and learning how to organize a seasonal or year round adaptive program for their community.
