About Incentive Fund

The Incentive Fund is an Australian Government funded program that provides good performing organisations with grants to assist in providing economic opportunities or improving services to the people of PNG.  It has become a widely recognised and valued component of Australia’s aid program in PNG.  Now in its fifteenth year, the current grant program has been reviewed and strengthened by both the Australian and Papua New Guinean governments, demonstrating a mature bilateral relationship between the two countries.  

Who can apply for a grant? 

A wide range of PNG organisations are eligible to apply for funding between K1million and K10million including: provincial and local-level governments, statutory government authorities, community and faith-based organisations and, for the first time, the private sector.
