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
