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.
