Direct Aid Program in Albania - Call for applications

The Embassy is pleased to announce that applications are open for Albania for the 2022-23 Direct Aid Program (DAP) grant round!

DAP is a flexible small grants program funded by the Australian Government and managed through overseas posts. The program aims to support projects with a strong development focus that complement Australia's broader aid program which contributes to sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction.

Last year, the Embassy funded a DAP project in Albania, focused on improving accessibility to an important beach in Kavaje, for the disabled.

DAP is available on a not-for-profit basis to individuals, community groups, NGOs and other entities engaged in development activities in Albania. Applications must be submitted via our ‘Smartygrants’ website and close on 28 October.

For more information on the application process and project guidelines, check out Smartygrants at
