The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a flexible small grants program funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The aim of the DAP is to advance developmental objectives and address humanitarian hardship in developing countries. DAP is administered through Australia’s overseas diplomatic posts on an annual (1 July – 30 June financial year) basis. Projects are expected to be self-sustainable and oriented towards self-help. Submissions should demonstrate a commitment on the part of the local authorities and/or people who will be the beneficiaries to implement the activities and sustain them. Projects that will offer direct and immediate benefits to target groups will be given preference.
Projects should primarily focus on: (1) Good Governance – which includes activities aimed at improving economic and financial management, capacity building , strengthening law and justice, increasing public sector effectiveness and developing civil society; and (2) Human Rights – defined broadly to include activities that enhance the rights of people and minimise the effects of discrimination. Projects could include support to areas such as poverty alleviation, community health, capacity building, schools/education, small-scale infrastructure, rural development, youth, gender equality, the environment including climate change, and ad hoc humanitarian relief.
The Australian High Commission is pleased to invite individuals, community groups, local NGOs, academic institutions, research bodies, libraries, museums, sports organisations or any other organizations engaged in development activities in Bangladesh to submit project proposals for funding under its Direct Aid Program for the year 2018-19.
Actions must take place in Bangladesh.
The DAP contribution towards each project will be limited to approximately AUD60,000 over one or two years (app. US$46,000).
The application documents can be downloaded from their website and must be submitted via email by 13/07/2018.
