The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Population Refugees and Migration (PRM) is seeking applications for its 2021 Egypt program to support refugee populations in Egypt.

Proposed activities should primarily support refugee populations in Egypt.

Programs must provide a beneficiary breakdown by proportion of Syrian refugee, non-Syrian refugee and host community populations.

Because of PRM’s mandate to provide protection, assistance, and sustainable solutions for refugees and victims of conflict, PRM will consider funding only those projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees, and Syrian refugees must constitute at least 50% of the target refugee beneficiary population.

Priority will be given to programs that target the most vulnerable populations.

Projects should demonstrate an emphasis on mainstreaming protection, including gender-based violence (GBV) prevention and response and child protection, across proposed sectors and activities.

• Protection;
• Gender-based Violence Prevention and Response;
