30 November 2018

The Australian Aid: Friendship Grants program is funding a new and diverse group of community partners to help in the delivery of the aid program.

Strong relationships between Australian communities and communities in our region are an effective way to promote inclusive development, human security and prosperity.

In this highly-competitive first round of Friendship Grants, more than 1,000 people registered their interest and more than 200 applications were received.

Friendship Grants have been awarded to 46 Australian community organisations who will expand or enhance their international development activities in 15 countries in our region.
