U.S. Embassy Announces Funding Opportunity for Maltese NGOs

The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce the 2019-2020 U.S. Department of State Julia Taft Refugee Fund opportunity.

The U.S. Embassy invites local NGOs to submit proposals that feature sustainable, quick-impact projects that meet gaps in assistance for refugees or returnee communities in Malta, including but not limited to projects aimed at providing tools to enhance competitiveness in the employment market or otherwise promote self-sufficiency.  The projects would benefit both the populations of concern and the host community.

NGOs may request a maximum of $25,000 for programs that will take place during the approximate period of September 15, 2019, to September 30, 2020.  Organizations currently receiving funding from the United States will be given lower priority in the selection process.

Please refer to the U.S. Embassy’s website for further information at https://mt.usembassy.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/129/NOFO-2019.pdf. The deadline for proposals to reach the U.S. Embassy is April 5, 2019, via vallettagrants@state.gov.
