The U.S. Bureau of Population Refugees and Migration is pleased to announce applications for NGO Programs Benefiting Refugees and Asylum Seekers.

Proposed activities should primarily support refugees and asylum seekers in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand.

refugees and victims of conflict, PRM will consider funding only those programs that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees / IDPs / other populations of concern.

Proposals must align with one or more of the following program areas:
i. Humanitarian Protection and Assistance;
