Cooperative Agreement Proposal Application Submission Deadline

Program Description Summary

This announcement is designed to accompany PRM’s general NGO guidelines, which provide additional information on PRM’s priorities and NGO funding strategy. Selected organizations must comply with these guidelines to ensure full compliance with PRM requirements and alignment with PRM’s priorities. Proposals that do not reflect the outlined requirements will not be considered.

The proposed activities must primarily support refugees and asylum seeker populations in Thailand, Malaysia, Nepal, and/or India. PRM will only consider funding programs that have a target program participant base of at least 50 percent refugees and asylum seekers due to their mandate to provide protection, assistance, and sustainable solutions for these populations.

Program areas must align with one or more of the following program areas: humanitarian protection and assistance, interim and durable solutions. Additionally, proposals must focus on one or more of the programmatic sectors outlined in the country-specific sections provided. It is important to refer to PRM’s general NGO guidelines for sector descriptions and additional requirements.

To ensure greater accountability for protection outcomes, all programs require three mandatory indicators: the number of individuals directly reached through PRM funding, the amount of humanitarian funding distributed to local, national, or refugee-led organizations, and the percentage of participants who report that humanitarian assistance is delivered in a safe, accessible, accountable, and participatory manner. These indicators must be included in the proposal indicator table, even if they have a target value of zero.

For more detailed information on the performance indicators and other requirements, please refer to the PRM Performance Indicator Reference and the Directorate General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) guidelines.
