1) Objective

The U.S. Embassy in Yaounde-Cameroon, Political and Economic Section is seeking proposals for innovative projects that address refugees’ or returnees’ social welfare in crisis-affected regions of Cameroon. They will also consider supporting projects that benefit both refugees/returnees and their host communities, with refugees representing 80% of the direct beneficiaries. Proposals targeting Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), stateless persons, or vulnerable migrants will not be considered under this program. Proposals can address one or more of the following sectors: WASH, education, health, vocational training, income generating activities, or any relevant social issue.

he Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is an initiative by the U.S. Department of State’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. Successful programs are those that can be implemented locally and 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).

2) Eligibility

The Julia Taft Refugee Fund is limited to Cameroonian locally registered CBOs, associations, or non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with at least 2 years of experience working in Cameroon. Recipients of the previous year’s Julia Taft fund are normally not eligible for the current year’s funds. Organizations and entities with a prior history of poor performance on U.S. government grants are ineligible to apply for funding.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Cameroon.

4) Budget

The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is meant to cover a one-time need of no more than $25,000 and cannot support a program for more than one year.

5) Application

NGOs are invited to submit a grant proposal for their projects by 10 March 2024, using the standard U.S. Embassy format via email to grantsyaounde@state.gov.
