AusAID Human Rights Grants

*AusAID Human Rights Grants*
The Australian Government’s 2010-11 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.
