The emphasis of the program is to alleviate poverty and basic humanitarian hardships. Presently, DAP applications with a drought preparedness focus are being prioritized. It is essential that DAP projects are oriented towards self-help and are sustainable. 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. Appropriate institutional support arrangements must be described (e.g. the level of recurrent costs generated and evidence of the applicant’s capacity to sustain these costs in the longer term).
DAP activities should aim to achieve practical and tangible outcomes that supports development within communities. The Australian Embassy in Pohnpei will favourably consider projects: (1) in the areas of education and skill development, agriculture, gender development, health and disability, youth development, disaster risk management, environmental management and rural development; (2) that pursue innovative approaches, projects and partners that leverage the budget to its maximum potential; (3) that help to build relationships with FSM government and community leaders; and (4) that have achievable and have sustainable outcomes.
The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a small, flexible scheme available to non-government organisations, governmental organisations and community groups engaged in development activities.
Actions must take place in Micronesia.
