The U. S. Embassy Abidjan 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 working in the area of refugees’ protection in Côte d’Ivoire.
The U. S. Department of
State’s Julia Taft Fund for Refugees responds to critical gaps in refugee assistance by funding durable solutions to the problems refugees and other displaced persons face.
The intent of this initiative is to provide Ambassadors with the means to respond to critical gaps that have not been addressed in larger multilateral refugee programs.The 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.
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.
