The U.S. Embassy in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire (Embassy Abidjan), in collaboration with the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM), is pleased to welcome proposals for projects via the Julia Taft Refugee Fund from potential partners working in the area of refugee protection in Côte d’Ivoire.

The U.S. Department of State’s Julia Taft Refugee Fund responds to critical gaps in refugee assistance by funding durable solutions to the problems refugees and other displaced persons face. The intent of this initiative is to provide U.S. ambassadors with the means to respond to critical gaps that have not been addressed in larger multilateral refugee programs.

Utilize This Offer

The funds are meant to support projects that assist refugees or refugee returnees. Requests to provide funding to populations other than refugees/returnees are discouraged, but exceptions can be made in some regions with "populations of concern" to PRM, such as internally displaced persons, vulnerable migrants, and stateless persons.

Consideration for support is also given to projects that benefit both populations of concern and their host communities.

The Julia Taft Refugee Fund is not meant as an emergency fund.

Not-for-profit organizations, including think tanks and civil society/non-governmental organizations (e.g.: international and local non-governmental organizations; community-based organizations; faith-based organization), are eligible to apply. Local non-governmental organizations will be given priority.

Length of performance period: 6 to 12 months

Available funding: USD$25,000.

Anticipated program start date: October 2021.

Applications are due no later than January 22, 2021.

Before submitting an application, applicants should review all the terms and conditions and required certifications which will apply to this award, to ensure that they will be able to comply.
