Direct Aid Program

The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a small grants program funded from Australia's aid budget. It has the flexibility to work with local communities in Turkey, Azerbaijan and Georgia on projects that reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development consistent with Australia's national interest.

 In the past, successful projects in Turkey, Azerbaijan and Georgia have focussed on achieving practical and tangible outcomes in: community development, education, gender equality, disabilities, youth and economic empowerment.

 Applications for the 2018-19 financial year are now closed, but we expect to open submissions for the 2019-20 financial year in August or September 2019.

 For more information on DAP see the Program Overview, Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan Guidelines, and our Environmental and Social Safeguards Policy.

 If you have any questions about the program, or experience technical problems completing your online application, please contact the Embassy’s DAP Manager by email  or phone: +90 312-459 9504.
