Direct Aid Program (DAP)

The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a community development program funded by the Australian Government. The program aims to support projects with a strong development focus that complement Australia's broader aid program which contributes to sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction.

Guidelines

The Direct Aid Program is a competitive small grants program funded by the Australian Aid program. Grants of up to 8000 pa'anga are available for proposals that can demonstrate a strong benefit to local communities in line with the priorities of the Australian Aid program in Tonga.

In 2020-21, we particularly welcome proposals for projects that address the following needs:

  • people with disabilities, women and girls, livelihoods, human rights, environment and climate change, community health, arts and culture, youth and social inclusion

Please read the guidelines for DAP 2020-21 thoroughly before applying.
