Deadline: 15th February 2021
The U.S. Mission to South Africa, 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.
The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is limited to registered NGOs with at least one-two years of experience working in South Africa. Local NGOs and international NGOs NOT receiving broader refugee program funding from the United States government are eligible to apply.
Note that the Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is meant to cover a one-time need and will not support multi-year projects, though funds may be utilized to lay the groundwork for such projects or programs. The 12-month project performance period will begin in/around July 2021.
HOW TO APPLY
NGOs are invited to submit a brief description of their proposed projects by close of business (5:00 p.m. GMT +2) February 15, 2021 via email. Please send completed applications to: [email protected]
Please note the following guidelines when preparing proposals: Project budgets cannot exceed $25,000 USD. Note that all proposals are required to have at least 50% of the beneficiaries be refugees.
