U.S. Embassy Conakry, in collaboration with the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM), is pleased to welcome proposals via the Julia Taft Refugee Fund from potential partners in Guinea working in the field of refugee protection.
The fund is meant to close low-cost gaps in refugee protection and assistance. Similarly, the intent of this initiative is to provide U.S. Ambassadors with the means to respond to critical programming gaps not addressed in larger multilateral refugee programs
Utilize This Offer
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 (IDPs), vulnerable migrants, and stateless persons.
The Taft Refugee Fund is intended for projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees or returnees.
Consideration for support is also given to projects that benefit both populations of concern and their host communities.
The fund is not meant as an emergency fund and these should be one-time interventions, not sustained programs.
Applicants must be a registered organization (e.g.: NGO, community-based organization; faith-based organization). Local NGOs will be given priority.
Please ensure that:
a) The proposal clearly addresses the goals and objectives of this funding opportunity;
b) All proposals must be submitted in English;
c) You complete and submit a detailed budget with the grant request.
Ceiling Award Amount: US$25,000.
Deadline: January 20 2021, 12:00 am.
