The U.S. Embassy in Cameroon is pleased to announce a funding opportunity through the 2021 Julia Taft Refugee Fund.

The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is an initiative by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) to respond to critical unmet needs of refugees. Created in 2000, the Julia Taft Fund for Refugees supports projects that fill gaps in refugee services not already being addressed by other organizations.

The Julia Taft Fund is intended primarily to support projects that assist refugees and/or returnees.

They will also consider support of projects that benefit both refugees/returnees and their host communities, with refugees representing 80% of the direct beneficiaries.

Projects that target Internal Displaced Persons (IDPs), stateless persons, or vulnerable migrants will not be considered under this program.

Utilize This Offer

The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is meant to cover a one-time need of no more than $25,000 and cannot support a program for more than one year.

Successful programs are those that can be implemented locally and that are not being addressed by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), other international organizations, or non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

The Julia Taft Refugee Fund is limited to Cameroonian registered CBOs, associations, or non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with at least 2 years of experience working in Cameroon.
Recipients of the previous year’s Julia Taft Fund are not eligible for this year’s funds.

Project budgets cannot exceed $25,000.

Proposals should comply with the U.S. Embassy standard grant format.
