The U.S. Mission Korea, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM), is pleased to welcome proposals for the 2022 Julia Taft Refugee Fund from potential partners working to assist?refugees?in the Republic of Korea.
The Taft Fund provides grants to national or local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for quick impact projects to meet currently unaddressed needs. Proposed projects should address a critical one-time need or intervention.
The Taft Fund is intended for projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees or returned refugees.
Mission Korea encourages applicant organizations to submit proposals that address at least one of the following areas:
- Innovative public awareness and advocacy campaigns on refugee issues.
- Legal assistance, educational support, or vocational training for refugees.
- Enhancing access to health services for refugees, including mental health resources.
Additionally, projects that promote equal access to protection, assistance, and other solutions in any of the areas for LGBTQI+ refugees will be given favorable consideration
Grants of up to USD $25,000.
- The U.S. Department of State will not fund projects that duplicate the work or services provided by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) or other multilateral refugee programs.
- The funds are meant to address one-time needs and interventions, not to support long-term projects requiring multi-year funding.
- The funds are not intended to be used as an emergency funding mechanism (e.g., to address needs like food or shelter).
- Applicants must be a registered organization (e.g., NGO, community-based organization, faith-based organization) and not a government entity or individual.
