The Australian Government offers small grants of up to AUD 60,000 to non-governmental organizations, community groups and other non-profit organizations so that they can undertake small-scale development projects, targeted at promoting economic development for less fortunate communities.

In 2017-2018, Hanoi DAP will prioritize high value projects and the ones that have innovative approaches to development challenges existing for a long time.

Deadline for online applications is by September 29.
