The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees (also known as the Ambassador’s Refugee Fund) is an initiative by the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) to respond to critical unmet needs of refugees. Created in 2000, the Julia Taft Fund for Refugees supports projects that fill gaps in refugee services not already being addressed by other organizations and that can be filled locally. Successful projects are those that are not being addressed by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), other international organizations, or non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that are already receiving USG funding.
While the Julia Taft Fund is open for applicants to propose any project that could best serve refugees in their region, there is particular interest in proposals focused on sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) prevention and response services. Note that all proposals are required to have at least 50% of the beneficiaries be refugees

The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is limited to registered non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with at least 1-2 years of experience working on refugee interventions in Ethiopia. Preference is given to support reliable local NGOs to encourage capacity building for smaller, local partners. INGOs are eligible to apply but preference will be given to INGOs that demonstrate close partnerships with local NGOs. Local and international NGO’s receiving U.S. Government’s broader refugee program funding are not eligible to apply.
