Funding Opportunity Announcement to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence (GBV)

US State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) is providing fund to prevent and respond to gender-based violence (GBV) in refugee and conflict-affected populations, including research and assessments to strengthen GBV prevention and response interventions among populations of concern.

It is said in their official website that the Proposals should aim to strengthen the broader international community’s response rather than building the capacity of a specific or single organization. Proposals for GBV prevention and response programs in specific locations should be submitted through the appropriate regional and/or country specific funding opportunity announcement rather than through this announcement.

PRM is seeking to support:

a) Global projects which seek to build the capacity of NGO and implementing partners to prevent and respond to GBV, including Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA). PRM will consider proposals that provide assistance to refugees, returnees, and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Colombia and the North Caucasus. In all other regions, at least 50% of beneficiaries should be refugees or refugee returnees.
b) Projects involving research, assessments, or formative evaluations that could inform and strengthen PRM policy and programming for GBV prevention and response among PRM populations of concern per the mandates of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). PRM will prioritize proposals that focus largely on refugees and refugee returnees.

Proposal submission deadline: Thursday July 1, 2010 at 12:00 p.m. (noon) EDT. Proposals submitted after this deadline will not be considered.

Proposed Program Start Dates: July15-September 1, 2010

Duration of Activity: No more than 12 months.
