The largest part of the Commission's budget is allocated to grant aid, usually 80%. It funds one year projects and part or whole of multi-year programmes.
JOAC has set the maximun grant for a single project to £100,000.00 with multi-year programmes up to £250,000.00, but there would be some flexibility in the amount spent each year.
JOAC will give preference to projects and multi-year programmes located in countries which are within the bottom 50 countries ranked on HDI (Human Development Index http://hdr.undp.org/en/data ).
JOAC will also consider imaginative or exceptional projects where support is clearly required, even though they may not fall within its policies.
