Australian Aid Friendship Grants 2019
Many Australian organisations, including charities, local government groups, professional organisations, diaspora groups and volunteer groups are already working hard to help communities in their region.
These organisations have unique, on-the-ground experience working in international development and have forged strong relationships with local communities overseas.
Strong relationships between Australian communities and communities in our region are an effective way to promote inclusive development, regional security and poverty reduction.
The three-year Australian Aid: Friendship Grants program will bring some of the best of these organisations into the Australian aid program by providing grants of $30,000 to $60,000, allowing them to expand or enhance their existing international development activities.
