The U.S. Embassy Monrovia, in collaboration with the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) has welcome proposals via the Julia Taft Refugee Fund from potential partners working in the area of refugees’ protection in Liberia.
This support is meant to meet low-cost gaps in refugee protection and assistance. Similarly, the intent of this initiative is to provide Ambassadors with the means to respond to critical gaps that have not been addressed in larger multilateral refugee programs.
