2023 Julia Taft Refugee Fund in Nigeria

The U.S. Mission Nigeria in collaboration with the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) of the U.S. Department of State announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a program thorough the Julia Taft Refugee Fund that will support one-time, low-cost interventions that address important gaps in protection and assistance for refugees and stateless persons.

Program Objectives

  • This initiative began in 2000, under the leadership of former Assistant Secretary Julia V. Taft (named for her posthumously), with the intent of providing Ambassadors with the means to respond to critical gaps that local agencies could address, and which larger multilateral humanitarian programs have not addressed.
  • The program is intended to meet gaps in assistance through quick impact projects to meet critical needs not addressed by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), International Organization for Migration (IOM), or other international organizations (IOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
  • The Taft Fund is intended for projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees or returned refugees. Please note that this program can not cover activities aimed at internally displaced or stateless persons in Nigeria. Additionally, the program may fund projects that support equal access to protection, assistance, and other solutions for LGBTQI+ refugees and stateless persons.
  • The proposed projects should be one-time interventions, not sustained programs.
  • Examples of past projects include improved access to education, development of livelihoods, basic business training, health awareness programs, early childhood development activities, mental health establishment of agricultural cooperatives, mental health services, protection from gender-based violence, legal assistance, community building activities, sports programs for refugee youth, security upgrades to camps and WASH programs.

  • Number of awards anticipated: 2 awards
