PRM seeks proposals that fill critical gaps in humanitarian assistance and local integration support for particularly vulnerable asylum seekers and migrants, including women, children, and indigenous populations, and disabled and elderly persons. Proposals should aim to improve beneficiaries’ self-reliance and form alliances with public institutions to provide basic services to the persons of concern. Programs in all countries must include a target beneficiary base with a minimum 51 percent asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants in need of international protection. Programs are encouraged to also include assistance to non-refugee vulnerable populations in host communities. PRM partners must coordinate with international organizations and other NGOs in all program areas. NGO programs should also be responsive to host country government priorities and concerns.

  • PRM seeks NGO proposals that primarily support Venezuelan asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants in Aruba, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Ecuador, Panama, Peru and Trinidad and Tobago. In the Caribbean, PRM anticipates funding one proposal for Trinidad and Tobago, and one proposal supporting both Aruba and Curacao.
  • These proposals should fill critical gaps in humanitarian assistance and local integration support for particularly vulnerable asylum seekers and migrants in need of international protection, especially women, children, indigenous populations, and disabled and elderly persons. Proposed activities should aim to improve beneficiaries’ self-reliance and form alliances with public institutions to improve their capacity to provide basic services to persons of concern. Within each country, programs should focus on areas with significant populations of asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants and weak institutional capacity, including in both rural and urban settings. Because of PRM’s mandate to provide protection, assistance, and sustainable solutions for asylum seekers and victims of conflict, PRM will consider funding only those projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 51 percent asylum seekers/vulnerable migrants/other populations of concern.
  • Proposals must focus on two or more of the following sectors:
    • Protection
    • Gender-based Violence Prevention and Response
    • Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS)
    • Shelter
    • Core Relief Items/Cash-Based Initiatives
    • Local Government Capacity-Building
    • Education
