U.S. Department of State, Bureau of PRM: Funding NGO Programs benefiting Displaced and Conflict-Affected Persons in Armenia and Georgia

Deadline: 31 May 2017

The Bureau of Population Refugees and Migration(PRM) of the United States Department of State is currently seeking applications for its funding opportunity for NGO programs benefiting displaced and conflict-affected persons in Armenia and Georgia.

Funding Priorities

  • Proposed activities should primarily support refugees and/or displaced persons in Georgia and Armenia. Because of PRM’s mandate to provide protection, assistance, and sustainable solutions for refugees and victims of conflict, PRM will consider funding only those projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees/IDPs/returnees.
  • Proposals must focus on one or more of the following areas:
    • Protection: PRM will consider proposals that include, for example, targeted grassroots legal assistance and counseling; community mobilization; other integration assistance; and information dissemination about available services.
    • Livelihoods: PRM will consider proposals that include, for example, vocational skills training; job-placement assistance; and promote self-sufficiency through employment.
    • Gender-based Violence: PRM will consider comprehensive gender-based violence proposals, including, for example, interventions that focus on core service provision, prevention or behavior change, and empowerment activities for women and girls.
    • Confidence Building (for Georgia only):PRM will consider projects seeking to support confidence building across communities divided by conflict.

Funding Information

Project proposals for organizations applying individually must not be less than $125,000 or more than $200,000 per year.

Duration: Program plans for one year will be considered.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with IRS, other than institutions of higher education;
  • Nonprofits without 501(c)(3) status with IRS, other than institutions of higher education; and
  • International Organizations. International multilateral organizations, such as United Nations agencies, should not submit proposals through Grants.gov in response to this Notice of Funding Opportunity announcement.
