I am getting these grants from here:

This one looks good for lan deployment.

The Volunteer Small Equipment Grants program provides funding of up to 
$3,000 to help organisations purchase equipment in the direct support of 
volunteers whose work contributes to benefiting families and communities.

The equipment should directly assist volunteers by making their 
volunteering activities easier, safer or more enjoyable.

Priority will be given to organisations:
a) whose volunteers work to support families and/or local communities
b) that have relatively small operating budgets and limited funding 
sources and a relatively high volunteer to paid staff ratio
c) whose objectives are consistent with the Stronger Families and 
Community Strategy's funding priorities
d) helping rebuild families and communities after disasters (including 
drought and bush fires)
e) wanting equipment that will have maximum benefit in the local 
community for a small outlay

Application forms are available from the web site.

Applications are closing on 21 July 2006.

To be eligible, organisations must be not-for-profit and incorporated. 
If an organisation is not incorporated, another incorporated 
organisation in the community (eg your local council) may accept and 
administer the grant on their behalf.
