The US Embassy in Djibouti, under the auspices of the Office of the Regional Refugee Coordinator and the Community Grants Program Office, has announced the availability of funding through the 2020 Julia Taft Fund for Refugees.
The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees (also known as the Ambassador’s Refugee Fund) 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 support projects that fill gaps in refugee services not already being addressed by other organizations and that can be filled locally.
While the Julia Taft Fund is open for applicants to propose any project that could best serve refugees in their region, there is particular interest in proposals involving urban refugees or projects in line with the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF) that assist both host communities and refugees
The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is limited to registered non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with at least 1-2 years of experience working in Djibouti. Note that the Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is meant to cover a one-time need and will not support a program for more than one year. The 12 month performance period will begin May 2020.
Eligible Country: Djibouti
