The Australian Government has announced Direct Aid Program (DAP) that focuses on small-scale development projects that can provide direct benefits to those most in need in the local community.

DAP projects cover a range of sectors such as education, health, water and sanitation, environmental protection, women’s empowerment and gender equality, supporting people with disabilities, economic livelihoods, food security and human rights.

DAP projects engage a wide range of partners including community groups, non-government organisations, educational institutions and local governments.

The overarching objective of the DAP programme is to advance development outcomes for vulnerable communities. In the context of the COVID-19 crisis, the DAP programme will seek to fill critical gaps in priority development sectors that are inadequately funded through other donor mechanisms. It will do this by providing grants to community-based grass roots organisations.

Utilize This Offer

DAP is available on a not-for-profit basis to international and local NGOs, civil society organisations and other community-based organisations engaging in development and human rights activities in Jordan.

Projects that aim to improve development or humanitarian outcomes in Jordan are eligible to apply for funding.

DAP activities should primarily be aimed at achieving direct, practical, tangible, and immediate outcomes of high development impact. They will favourably consider projects that target:
• Youth
• Women and girls
• Climate change
• People living with disabilities.

A single DAP project can receive grants up to AUD33,000 (approx. JD16,500).

Activities can run up to a maximum of two years.

Submissions close at midnight 14 November 2021 (EET).
