AusAID Human Rights Grants

The Australian Government’s Human Rights Grants Scheme (HRGS) is now open to receive Expressions of Interest for funding to conduct human rights activities in developing countries.

The Scheme supports non-government organisations and human rights institutions to conduct human rights projects with direct and tangible benefits for at-risk populations. Through the Scheme, Australia helps to build civil society capacity in developing countries to protect and promote human rights at the grassroots level.

Human rights-focused organisations based or working in all ODA-eligible countries in Asia, the Pacific, Middle East, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean are invited to apply for funding under the Scheme. Grants range from between $20,000 and $100,000 for one year projects and up to $150,000 for two year projects. Expression of Interest forms must be mailed or delivered to the relevant Australian diplomatic post and received by Tuesday 15 June.

The Human Rights Grants Scheme (HRGS) is now calling for Expressions of Interest for the funding round. The HRGS provides grant funding to non-government organisations and human rights institutions based or operating in developing countries to promote and protect human rights in direct and tangible ways.
