Australian Aid: Friendship Grants

Australian community organisations such as charities, not-for-profits, diaspora organisations and volunteer groups have a proud record of providing development assistance across our region. We recently launched the Australian Aid: Friendship Grants program which will bring these organisations into the Australian aid program by providing funding to expand or enhance their international development activities.

The Australian Government will provide $10 million over three years through grants of $30,000 to $60,000 for a range of activities, including education, healthcare, water supply and sanitation, rural development, and projects that promote economic sustainability through the empowerment of women and girls.

Australian Aid: Friendship Grants will be awarded to organisations through a competitive, merit-based process. Round One is now open, with the first grants announced from November 2018. I encourage all interested and eligible community organisations to apply for this exciting initiative. 

Applications close on 27 August 2018. For more information about Australian Aid: Friendship Grants, visit: www.dfat.gov.au/FriendshipGrants.
