Julia Taft Refugee Fund in Cameroon
The U.S. Embassy in Cameroon is seeking applications for its Julia Taft Refugee Fund.
The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is an initiative by the U.S. Department of State 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 service not already being addressed by other organizations.
The Taft Fund is intended primarily to support projects that assist refugees and/or returnees.
They will also consider support of projects that benefit both refugees/returnees and their host communities, with refugees representing 80% of the direct beneficiaries.
Projects that target Internal Displaced Persons (IDPs), stateless persons and vulnerable migrants, will not be considered under this program.
They cannot provide direct support to the local government, recommend a project funded the previous year, nor can they provide continued funding for a project as the Julia Taft Refugee Fund is meant to cover a one-time need and not a long-term program.
- Estimated Total Program Funding: $25,000
- Award Ceiling: $25,000
- Award Floor: $12,500Eligibility Criteria
The Julia Taft Refugee Fund is limited to Cameroonian registered CBOs, associations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with at least 2 years of experience working in Cameroon.
Recipients of the previous year’s Julia Taft fund are not eligible for this year’s funds.
Apply by 22nd January.
