Direct Aid Program (DAP)

The Direct Aid Program

The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a flexible, small grants scheme for development activities, managed by the Australian Embassy in Vientiane, Lao PDR.

The program funds projects that provide direct benefits to those most in need in the local community, including vulnerable or disadvantaged groups. Our program is focused on livelihoods. Applications for capacity building projects, including in the areas of governance, economic development and human rights engagement, are also welcome.
