Description

The U.S. Embassy Luanda, under the auspices of the Office of the Regional Refugee Coordinator, is pleased to announce the availability of a funding opportunity through the 2021 Julia Taft Fund for Refugees.

The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is an initiative by the U.S. State Department’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 and that can be filled locally. Successful projects are those 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), that are already receiving U.S. government funding.
Objective: PRM’s Taft Refugee Fund is intended to meet gaps in refugee assistance by issuing grants of up to $25,000 to local NGOs for quick impact projects to meet critical needs not addressed by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), International Organization for Migration (IOM), other international organizations (IOs), or nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) receiving U.S. government funding. The Taft Refugee Fund is intended for projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees or returned refugees.
Funding Information
  • Total Amount Available: $25,000
  • Anticipated Program Start Date: October 1, 2021
  • Program Performance Period:Proposed programs should be completed in 1 year or less.
Priority Region: Funding will be allocated for activities in regions where there are refugee or returned refugee communities in Angola.
Eligibility Criteria
  • What is an appropriate use of the Fund The Taft Refugee Fund is intended for projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50% refugees or returned refugees. Julia Taft Fund for refugees is meant to cover a one-time need and will not support multi-year projects, thought funds may be utilized to lay the groundwork for such projects or programs.
  • What is an inappropriate use of the Fund They do not provide direct support to host governments. They discourage proposals from international organizations (IO) as funding for IO programs is most efficiently provided through contributions issued domestically by PRM. The preference is to support local NGOs. PRM’s Taft Refugee Fund should not be confused with USAID’s International Disaster Assistance (IDA) account for natural and human-made disasters.
