Julia Taft Fund Grants in Kenya for Refugees
The U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya, under the auspices of the Office of the Regional Refugee Coordinator and the Community Grants Program Office, is pleased to announce the availability of a funding opportunity through the Julia Taft Fund for Refugees.
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 addressing legal and social protections, as well as livelihood projects, for refugees, refugee youth, and stateless persons that compliment ongoing interventions in camps or urban refugee areas.
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 is intended to meet gaps in refugee assistance and protection by issuing grants to local NGOs for one-time, quick impact projects of up to $25,000 that are 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 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) receiving U.S. government funding.
- The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is limited to registered non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with at least 2 years of experience working in Kenya.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 immediately following the award disbursement.
Apply by 22nd January.
