This solicitation is the first step in a two-part process.
After reviewing concept notes, PRM will invite (no later than 30 days after submission) selected organizations to expand their submissions into full single-year (15-page) or multi-year (20-page) proposals with objectives, indicators, and
detailed budgets for each year of the program.
Selected organizations will have 30 calendar days after they are notified of their selection to complete their full proposals.
Organizations may apply as partners or consortia.
For purposes of this notice, PRM considers a consortium to be a group of no fewer than three NGOs that comprise an agreement, combination, or group formed to undertake, or proposing to undertake, an activity beyond the resources of any one member.
This announcement references PRM’s General NGO Guidelines, which contain additional information on PRM’s priorities and NGO funding strategy with which selected organizations must comply.
Please use both the General NGO Guidelines and this announcement to ensure that your concept note submission is in full compliance with PRM requirements and that the proposed activities are in line with PRM’s priorities.
Concept note submissions that do not reflect the requirements outlined in these guidelines will not be considered.
Concept note activities should primarily support the identification, assessment and referral to the United States, of particularly vulnerable refugees.
This should include refugees of any nationality and stateless individuals who have protection needs and who may otherwise have difficulty accessing the United States Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) or other third-country resettlement.
Though projects may focus on any region or nationality(ies), PRM will prioritize those that seek to refer greater numbers of 1) LGBTQI+ refugees (particularly from Afghanistan) 2) at-risk individuals in Central America, and/or 3) Uyghurs, Hong Kong refugees, Burmese dissidents, Haitians and other key refugee populations as specified in the FY 2022 Report to Congress.
