Julia Taft Refugee Fund for Fiscal Year 2024 – Apply now!

U.S. Embassy Bamako in collaboration with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) is pleased to welcome proposals via the Julia Taft Refugee Fund from potential partners working to assist refugees in Mali. This support is meant to meet low-cost gaps in refugee protection and assistance. Similarly, the intent of this initiative is to provide U.S. Ambassadors with the means to respond to critical gaps that have not been addressed in larger multilateral refugee programs.

Note: This funding opportunity targets refugees, asylum-seekers, or refugee returnees; it does not support proposals aimed at internally displaced persons (IDPs). Refugees, asylum seekers, and/or refugee returnees must comprise at least 50 percent of project participants.
