Kabul Direct Aid Program 2018/19  

Applications for the 2018/19 Direct Aid Program (DAP) are now open. DAP is a flexible small grants program funded from Australia’s aid budget which is managed by the Australian Embassy Kabul.

DAP funding in Afghanistan is available on a not-for-profit basis to individuals, community groups and NGOs engaged in development activities in Afghanistan. The program focuses on supporting small-scale development projects and activities which can achieve practical outcomes related to community health and infrastructure, economic empowerment, youth, gender equality and poverty alleviation.

To be eligible for funding, projects must fall within the DAP guidelines. The Kabul DAP Committee will consider each application on its merits and make recommendations for funding based on expected development outcomes and whether the proposed project meets the guidelines.
