Julia Taft Fund for Refugees in Uganda
The U.S. Embassy in Kampala, under the auspices of the Office of the Regional Refugee Coordinator, has announced the availability of a funding opportunity through the 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 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with at least 1-2 years of experience working in Uganda.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.
Apply by 29th January.
