Show close time for other time zones
Currently, DFAT has two development-through-sport investments: the Pacific Sports Partnerships (PSP) program (2009-2017) and the Asian Sports Partnerships (ASP) program (2015-2017). PSP is a $4 million annual program that supports 15 sports across nine countries. ASP is a $2 million annual program that supports 18 sports across 18 countries. Both the PSP and ASP utilise Australian expertise in sports to make a positive impact on developing communities and promote a positive perception of Australia in the region.
Following an independent evaluation of the PSP and the ASP, DFAT intends to establish one regional Asia-Pacific sports for development program – Australian Sports Partnerships Program (ASPP) is the working title. The investment will be funded at $6 million per year, which includes management costs and direct grants to sporting and other implementing organisations. The program will be implemented for up to 10 years commencing in 2018, with an initial period of four years and two possible extensions of three years (4+3+3). If both extensions are exercised the program will end in 2028.
