The Direct Aid Program is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible groups or organisations undertaking suitable small-scale development projects. Our areas of focus for this round are the rights and empowerment of women and girls, disability inclusion and COVID-19 response and recovery. Activities may run up to a maximum of two years. In certain cases, consideration may be given to contributions to disaster relief operations.
Funding is available on a not-for-profit basis to community groups, NGOs and other entities engaged in development activities in countries that are eligible for ODA.
Actions must take place in Kenya.
It is imperative that projects have defined and realistic objectives and clear outcomes. DAP grants are awarded to a maximum of AUD 60,000 (approximately USD 42,296 at time of publishing). Projects must be self-sustaining and recurrent/ongoing costs will not be supported (e.g. salaries/rental/utility costs, micro credit schemes or any other project that involves return of money, etc.). Projects that demonstrate a high level of local contribution (financially and/or in kind) are encouraged.
The FY 2020-21 applications round will open on 30 September 2020 7am and close on 21 October 2020 10pm (East Africa Time).
