Applications for Round 1 are now open. To apply, see our How to apply page. Applications will close on 27 August.
Announced in the 2018-19 Budget, and launched by the Foreign Minister the Hon Julie Bishop MP on 30 May 2018, the $10 million, three-year Australian Aid: Friendship Grants program will engage a diverse group of Australian community organisations in the delivery of Australia's aid program.
The program will support organisations from across Australia who have existing relationships and international development activities that are contributing to Australia's development goals. The Friendship Grants will provide funding for these community organisations to expand or enhance their existing aid activities in the Indo-Pacific, including through new projects.
Eligible Australian community organisations are encouraged to apply for funding of between $30,000 and $60,000 in three annual grant rounds.
Many Australian organisations, including charities, local government groups, professional organisations, diaspora groups and volunteer groups are already working hard to help communities in our region. These organisations have unique, on-the-ground experience in international development and have forged strong relationships with local communities overseas. Friendship Grants aims to bring the international development experience of these Australian community organisations into the Australian aid program by supporting the best of these activities and projects.
