Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the Direct Aid Program (DAP) are now open. The DAP is a small grants program funded by the Australian Government and managed from the Australian High Commission in Port Moresby. It aims to support small-scale projects with a strong development focus that complement Australia’s broader aid program.

Funding is only available to community groups, NGOs and other organisations engaged in development activities on a not-for-profit basis. The maximum DAP funding a project can receive is AUD 60,000. However, DAP strives to support multiple projects and most successful projects have requested between AUD4,000 and AUD15,000. Projects must be delivered within six months of funding.

Here’s a background about the DAP and the guidelines for more information. Applications close on 28 October 2022.

Applications for the next round of the Alumni Grants Scheme are open now and will close on Sunday, 31 July 2022 (5pm PNG time).
