Deadline: 20 November 2016
The Australian Embassy in Iraq is accepting applications for its 2017 Direct Aid Program with an aim to support community organisations in Iraq working to reduce poverty, displacement and achieve sustainable development.
In 2016, the Australian Government funded three projects in Iraq:
- A child education centre in Baghdad.
- A food industries training program for displaced women in Diyala.
- A health training program for displaced women in Salah Al-Din.
Grants may range between USD 20,000 to USD 40,000 and must be spent by 30 June 2017.
- The Australian Embassy Baghdad DAP Committee needs to ensure that projects have developmental outcomes, and are consistent with the international relations and public diplomacy objectives of the Australian Embassy Baghdad.
- Attention is given to projects providing direct benefits to those most in need in the local community, including vulnerable or disadvantaged groups, children and youth.
- Eligible activities include community health, education, small scale infrastructure, sanitation, rural development, environmental development, gender equality, conferences and training activities, and cultural and sporting activities.
- All such projects must have a developmental outcome and be implemented within a relatively short period of time. In certain cases, consideration may be given to contributions to disaster relief operations.
- The DAP Committee may invite applications from other organisations, including NGOs, to assist in the development of strategic partnerships.
How to Apply
Interested applicants must download the application form and send it via email at the address given on the website.
