Deadline: 3 February 2017
The Australian High Commission Republic of Kenya is seeking applications for its Direct Aid Program (DAP) in order to provide financial assistance to eligible groups or organisations undertaking suitable small scale development projects.
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.
Projects can be in any sector (e.g. community health, education, small scale infrastructure, sanitation, rural development, environmental development, gender equality, conferences and training activities, and cultural and sporting activities) but must aim to alleviate basic humanitarian hardships, have a developmental outcome and be implemented within a relatively short period of time.
- DAP grants are awarded to a maximum of AUD 60,000 (USD 44,220).
- Applicants are encouraged to apply for funding in the range of AUD 5,000 (USD 3,685) to AUD 30,000 (USD 22,110).
- Projects must be self-sustaining and recurrent/ongoing costs will not be supported (e.g. salaries/rental/utility costs), nor will micro credit schemes or any other project that involves return of money.
