The State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) provides aid and sustainable solutions for refugees, victims of conflict and stateless people around the world, through repatriation, local integration, and resettlement in the United States. PRM also promotes the United States’ population and migration policies. PRM will prioritize funding for proposed activities that best meet the Bureau’s priorities as identified below:

  • Projects to strengthen evidence-based decision making tools for use in humanitarian programs, including those funded by PRM.
  • Projects involving research, assessment, or formative evaluation that could inform and strengthen PRM policy and programming for:
    . urban refugees/urban displacement;
    . refugees in protracted situations of displacement for five or more years;
    . stateless persons.

(a) Proposals to strengthen evidence-based decision making tools for humanitarian operations must focus on measuring performance, improving data collection, quality, and/or coordination, and/or attaining minimum international standards. Of particular interest are projects that identify data collection mechanisms or good practices in urban settings. Proposals should aim to strengthen tools that serve a public good by addressing gaps in knowledge, rather than meeting the accountability requirements of a specific organization. Selected proposals will likely focus on one or two of the following areas: Food security, Nutrition, Health, Protection, Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH), Livelihoods, and/or Primary Education.

(b) Proposals involving research, assessments, or formative evaluation should include policy and program implementation recommendations to relevant parties.

(c) PRM will accept proposals that are country- or population-specific. PRM will also accept proposals that include multiple countries/populations/regions and include analysis across different cases.

(d) All final reports should include data, findings, and actionable recommendations for policy and program implementation.

(e) PRM will accept proposals from any organization, including universities and research institutes, proposing to work in the above mentioned areas.

Funding Limits: PRM will consider projects submitted with budgets up to $300,000.

Funding Opportunity Number: PRM-SGP-10-CA-04192010

Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number: 19.522 – Overseas Refugee Assistance Programs for Strategic Global Priorities
