The Australian High Commission Republic of Kenya is seeking applications for Direct Aid Program which is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible groups or organisations undertaking suitable small scale development projects.
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.
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.
DAP grants are awarded to a maximum of AUD 60,000 (approximately USD 44,560 at time of publishing). However, applicants are encouraged to apply for funding in the range of AUD 5,000 (USD 3,715) to AUD 30,000 (USD 22,280 at time of publishing).
Funding is available on a not-for-profit basis to community groups, NGOs and other entities engaged in development activities in countries that are eligible for ODA.
