Refugee assistance. International Organizations (IOs) that are engaged in programs relevant to the assistance addressed by this PRM funding announcement should ensure that these programs are made known to PRM on or before the closing date of this funding announcement so that PRM can evaluate all IO and NGO programs for funding consideration.
(a) Proposed activities should support Ivoirian refugees in Nimba County, Liberia. (b) PRM encourages the relocation of Ivoirian refugees from the insecure border area to refugee camps and relocation villages. As such, proposals targeting refugees in border areas must focus on life-saving interventions, e.g., in health (including reproductive health) and nutrition; water, sanitation, and hygiene; and refugee protection, including programs to prevent and respond to gender-based violence. (c) Proposals for activities in the refugee camp(s) or government-designated relocation villages may include life-saving and life-sustaining interventions across sectors, including health and nutrition; water, sanitation, and hygiene; refugee protection, including programs to prevent and respond to gender-based violence; shelter and infrastructure; livelihoods; and education. (d) Successful submissions will propose activities that can begin immediately. PRM also prioritizes close coordination among humanitarian actors, under the leadership of UNHCR. Accordingly, PRM will only consider proposals from NGOs that are currently: (i) operational in Nimba County (ii) active in the sectors being proposed (iii) active in Monrovia and field-level sector coordination meetings, and (iv) established or anticipated implementing partners of UNHCR, as evidenced by a signed MOU or letter of support from UNHCR or current UNHCR funding. (e) PRM will accept proposals from any NGO meeting the above mentioned criteria although, given budgetary constraints, priority will be given to proposals from organizations that can demonstrate: --a concrete implementation plan with well-conceived objectives and indicators that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and reliable, time-bound and trackable (SMART), have established baselines, and include at least one outcome or impact indicator per objective; --a proven track record in providing proposed assistance both in the sector and specified location; --evidence of coordination with international organizations (IOs) and other NGOs working in the same area or sector as well as - where possible - local authorities; --A budget that is appropriate for meeting the objectives and demonstrates co-funding by non-US government sources; --Appropriate targeting of beneficiaries in coordination with UNHCR and other relevant organizations. Because of PRM's mandate to provide protection, assistance, and sustainable solutions for refugees and victims of conflict, PRM considers funding only those projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50% refugees. --Adherence to relevant international standards for humanitarian assistance. See PRM's General NGO Guidelines for a complete list of sector-specific standards. ***************************************************************************** For more details on this specific opportunity, please click the "Full Announcement" Grants.gov link.
