Direct Aid Program (DAP)
The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a community development program funded by the Australian Government. 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.
The Australian High Commission in Tonga accepts DAP applications throughout the year, for projects of up to TOP8,000.
