Australian Embassy Direct Aid Program invites applications
The Australian Embassy invites applications for projects to be supported under its Direct Aid Program (DAP).
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 program focuses on supporting small-scale development projects and activities that involve the beneficiaries in the identification, design and management of the projects.
Funding is available on a not-for-profit basis to individuals, organisations and community groups engaged in development activities in Thailand on a not-for-profit basis. Applications cannot be accepted from commercial operations.
This year, priority will be given to projects in the following areas:
• Sustainable development with a focus on improving public health;
• Support for education;
• Gender equality and womens’ empowerment; and
• Poverty with special attention on the elderly, youth and migrant workers.
Applications for projects in other areas are still eligible to apply, but will be given a lower priority when deciding which applications should be funded.
There is no minimum or maximum amount that a single DAP project can receive, although funding for most projects will fall between 100,000 THB and 700,000 THB range. Projects must be completed and acquitted fully by January 2013.
Applications must comply with the ‘Applicant Guidelines 2012-13 for the Direct Aid Program’ and must be made using the ‘Project Proposal Form 2012-13’. Applications close on 21 September 2012.
Queries can be directed to the Australian Embassy at:
Phone: 02-344-6555 (English), 02-344-6362 (Thai).
