  • Tanzania Country-Specific Guidance
    • Proposals must focus on the Congolese and Burundian refugee and asylum seeker populations located in camp-based settings in Tanzania. They encourage proposals to demonstrate how the program will support Burundian refugees participating in UNHCR’s voluntary repatriation program, such as providing services that will help refugees reintegrate upon return. They expect applicants to coordinate with UNHCR when planning, implementing, and reporting on its programs. Applicants should submit a letter of support from UNHCR for their proposal.
