Posted by Jamal Fida Thursday, November 15, 2012 0 comments

Closing Date: December 6,2012:

Program plans for protection, including prevention of and response to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in urban refugee and refugee settlement communities in Uganda should be for no more than 12 months. Applicants must re-compete for PRM funding each year. Furthermore, in funding a project one year, PRM makes no representations that it will continue to fund the project in successive years and encourages applicants to seek a wide array of donors to ensure long-term funding possibilities.

Program plans from 12 to 24 months will be considered for activities addressing protracted needs in Tanzania and Rwanda. Applicants may submit multi-year proposals with activities and budgets that do not exceed 24 months from the proposed start date. Actual awards will not exceed 12 months in duration. Multi-year proposals selected for funding by PRM will be funded in 12-month increments and must include results-based indicators within the first 12 months. Continued funding after the initial 12-month award requires the submission of a noncompeting continuation application as detailed in the Noncompeting Application Requirements section below and will be contingent upon available funding, strong performance, and continuing need. NGOs receiving awards under these terms will be required to submit continuation applications at least three months in advance of the end of the first 12-month period of activities. Please see Multi-Year Funding section below for additional information.

Eligible Applicants: 
(1) Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with IRS, other than institutions of higher education; 
(2) Nonprofits without 501(c)(3) status with IRS, other than institutions of higher education; and 
(3) International Organizations. International Organizations (IOs) should not submit proposals through Grants.gov in response to this Funding Opportunity Announcement. Rather IOs such as UN agencies and other Public International Organizations (PIOs) that are seeking funding for programs relevant to this announcement should contact the relevant PRM Program Officer (as stated below) on or before the closing date of the funding announcement.

Current Country Specific Funding Priorities and Instructions: PRM will prioritize available funding for Tanzania, Rwanda, and Uganda as identified below. All proposals should target beneficiaries as identified in collaboration with UNHCR and local authorities.

(1) Tanzania and Rwanda
· Proposals for Tanzania should focus on life-saving basic preventative and curative healthcare assistance, and protection for vulnerable groups and individuals, including prevention and response for sexual and gender-based violence, in Nyaragusu refugee camp in western Tanzania.
· Proposals for Rwanda should focus on camp management, basic preventative and curative healthcare assistance, water and sanitation, and sexual and gender-based violence prevention and response for refugees.
· While PRM does not discourage activities that also include the local host population along with refugees, proposals should concentrate on activities for refugees. At least 80% of beneficiaries must be refugees.

(2) Uganda
· Proposals for Uganda should focus on sexual and gender-based violence prevention and response targeting vulnerable groups, including LGBTI individuals, in urban refugee communities and in the refugee settlements in western Uganda.
· Proposals can choose to focus on assistance to either the refugee settlements or to urban refugee communities. While PRM does not discourage activities that also include the local host population along with refugees, proposals should concentrate on activities for refugees. At least 80% of beneficiaries must be refugees with the remainder, if any, being vulnerable individuals in host communities.
