THE Fiji Community Development Program's (FCDP) funds available for immediate Tropical Cyclone Evan relief have been exhausted.
FCDP representative Michael Brownjohn said therefore any further funding to civil society organisations would be for long-term development, service provision and community resilience purposes.
Mr Brownjohn said AusAID's focus in Fiji was to improve education, health and livelihood for the poor.
"AusAID, through the Fiji Community Development Program (FCDP) will fund civil society organisations (CSOs) to provide services to mitigate social and economic hardship faced by poor, disadvantaged and marginalised communities in Fiji," he said.
"The Australian government will provide $A4.9million ($F9.18M) in grants to CSOs over the next three years around Fiji through FCDP to provide services to poor, disadvantaged and vulnerable communities.
"In addition, a further $A500,000 ($F937,086) will be allocated to develop and enhance the capacity of CSOs in Fiji over the same period."
Mr Brownjohn said the program's intention was to support the delivery of services by CSOs to all provinces in Fiji, including Rotuma.
"To assist the broadest possible engagement with CSO partners, FCDP has established office locations in Suva, Lautoka and Labasa and our staff are permanently located in each of these areas," he said.
