Deadline: 17 November 2017

Australian High Commission in Papua New Guinea is seeking applications for its Direct Aid Program (DAP) which 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.

DAP funding is only available to community groups, NGOs and other organizations engaged in development activities on a not-for-profit basis.

Funding Information

The maximum DAP funding a project can receive is AU$60,000. Projects must be delivered within six months of funding.

Eligibility Criteria

  • DAP Project proposals must:
    • Address poverty alleviation by supporting projects that aim at improving the livelihood of communities.
    • Support the inclusion and active participation of the disadvantaged population (women, girls, children, Persons living with a Disability and those with HIV/AIDS).
    • Be sustainable and have lasting developmental benefits, with any ongoing costs or maintenance to be met by the community.
