Papua New Guinea
The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a small grants program funded by the Australian Government and managed by the Australian High Commission in Port Moresby. DAP aims to support small-scale projects with a strong development focus that complement Australia’s broader aid program. The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a small grants program funded from Australia’s aid budget. It has the flexibility to work with local communities in developing countries on projects that reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development consistent with Australia’s national interest.
DAP projects cover a range of sectors such as education, health, water and sanitation, environmental protection, women’s empowerment and gender equality, supporting people with disabilities, economic livelihoods, food security and human rights. DAP projects engage a wide range of partners including community groups, non-government organisations, educational institutions and local governments.
This funding is only available to community groups, NGOs and other organisations engaged in development activities on a not-for-profit basis.
Action must be implemented in Papua New Guinea.
There is no minimum amount that a single DAP project can receive but the maximum is AUD$60,000 over the life of the project (dependent on the country). Activities can run up to a maximum of two years.
The 2022-23 DAP round is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) now until 28 October 2022. Application forms are accessed online.
