Applications open for Australia’s Direct Aid Program grants
Applications are now open for the Australian Government’s Direct Aid Program grants.
The Direct Aid Program is a small grants scheme aimed at supporting small-scale development projects with a strong community focus.
Potential applicants are encouraged to read the guidelines for information about eligibility and obligations which arise from receiving a Direct Aid Program grant. The guidelines and application form can be found at http://png.highcommission.gov.au/pmsb/cooperation.html
Applicants can apply for a maximum of AUD 60,000 over the life of the project. Please note that due to limited funding available, the grants are extremely competitive and not all applications can be funded.
Applications are open from 18 October until 18 November 2016, and can be submitted to the Direct Aid Program Coordinator:
By email: Port-Moresby.firstname.lastname@example.org
By mail: Australian High Commission Locked Mail Bag 129 Godwit Road, Waigani NCD
