Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration – PRM’s Taft Refugee Fund is intended to meet gaps in assistance by issuing grants of up to $50,000 to national or local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for quick impact projects to meet critical needs 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), or other international organizations (IOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). This fund is intended primarily to support projects that assist refugees, refugee returnees, migrants, statelessness, and other marginalized people within refugee, returnees, and migrant populations. Projects could range from income generating activities to capacity building programs.
The Taft Fund is intended for projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees or returned refugees. Embassy is also interested in supporting projects that address issues related to statelessness, assistance to marginalized groups within refugee, returnee, and migrant populations using the Taft Fund.
The Program and Grants Office (PGO) encourages applications from locally registered civil society entities such as, national and local non-governmental organizations, associations, cooperatives, or groups with refugee or returnee programming experience.
Actions must take place in Mauritania.
The fund seeks to meet gaps in ongoing refugee programs that can be filled locally through projects of up to $50,000. Projects proposed should not exceed $12,500 (about 4.2 million UM).
