The Direct Aid Program
The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a flexible small grants program funded by the Australian Government through AusAID and managed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The aim of the DAP is to advance developmental objectives and address humanitarian hardship in developing countries. DAP is administered through Australia's overseas diplomatic posts on an annual (1 July-30 June financial year) basis.
DAP is available on a not-for-profit basis to individuals, community groups, NGOs and other entities engaged in development activities in countries that are eligible for overseas development assistance. The program focuses on supporting small-scale development projects and activities that involve the beneficiaries in the identification, design and management of the projects.
