About Australia's Aid Program

The Australian Government's overseas aid program is improving the lives of millions of people in developing countries. Australia is working with the governments and people of developing countries to deliver aid where it is most needed and most effective.

Australian aid has helped our neighbours and countries further abroad to develop. For example, Australian aid has wiped out polio from the Pacific. Australian aid has seen more than 1.5 million children immunised against measles and polio in Papua New Guinea.

Please see for further information.

The Direct Aid Program 

The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a flexible, small grants scheme for development activities managed by Heads of Australian Missions in approximately 45 countries. The emphasis of the program is on alleviating basic humanitarian hardships.

The Australian Embassy in Tehran takes part in this program. In the last twelve months the Embassy has funded a range of projects that help disadvantaged youth gain access to basic education.

We encourage applications for DAP funding from individuals, NGOs and not-for-profit organisations involved in humanitarian projects. Please see for further information. To submit a proposal to the Direct Aid Program Committee at the Australian Embassy, Tehran, please Contact Us.
