The Grants to Australian Organisations Program (GAOP) provides the Commonwealth’s contribution to organisations:

(i) working in the areas of law reform, legal research and law enforcement and endorsed for funding by the National Justice and Policing Senior Officials Group (NJPSOG), and
(ii) working in the area of humanitarian legal issues.

The GAOP has two funding streams.

Stream One: Grants relating to law reform, legal research and law enforcement

Stream Two: Grants relating to the application of humanitarian legal issues.

The objectives of the Grants to Australian Organisations Program (the Program) are to fund suitable activities that relate to, or assist with, the pursuit of an equitable and accessible system of federal civil justice.

The expected outcomes are:

• A website that provides access to legislative material and records the decisions of courts and tribunals
• An increase in the knowledge of Australian judicial and law enforcement officers
• Higher levels of research into judicial administration and improved education programs for legal officers in relation to court administration and judicial systems
• Increased awareness of the requirements expected from the application of the principles of humanitarian law
