The U.S. Embassy in Monrovia is now accepting proposals for one-time projects designed to help refugees or returnees in Liberia. Project proposals should not exceed $25,000. Please email your proposals to the project coordinator at Boveldf@state.gov – the deadline for submission is 11:59 pm, April 24, 2019.
What is the purpose of the Fund? The Taft Refugee Fund is intended to support urgent projects or gaps in assistance for refugees and returnees in Liberia. Proposals should be for one-time interventions, not sustained programs, and should address needs not addressed by other governmental, non-governmental, or international organizations. We will consider proposals for support of international NGOs, but especially welcome and encourage local NGOs to apply.
What is an inappropriate use of the Fund? We cannot provide direct support to government projects and may not be able to support organizations already receiving funding from the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM). If you have questions, please contact the project coordinator below.
