The Australian Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a flexible small grants program for development activities funded from Australia’s aid budget and managed through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s overseas posts.

DAP advances developmental outcomes primarily focused on practical and tangible results. The program funds projects that provide direct benefits to those most in need in the local community, including vulnerable or disadvantaged groups.

Funding is available on a not-for-profit basis to organisations, community groups and individuals engaged in development activities in Thailand. Applications cannot be accepted from commercial operations.

Applications are now open but close on 28 September 2018.

Further information on eligibility for DAP funding in Thailand and how to apply is available at this Australian Embassy Bangkok web page –
