Australian High Commission

The Direct Aid Program (DAP)

The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a small grants program funded by the Australian Government and managed by the Australian High Commission in Funafuti. DAP aims to support small-scale projects with a strong development focus that complement Australia’s broader aid program. This funding is only available to community groups, NGOs and other organisations engaged in development activities on a not-for-profit basis.

Applicants applying online for the 2020-21 DAP round can access the online system here. The Guidelines are available here. Should you have any difficulty accessing the forms, or would like more information about DAP, please contact [email protected]

Please note that due to the competitive nature of the DAP and the high number of quality applications received, not all applicants will receive funding.
