Global, Regional, and Country Provisions

  • Global, regional, and country guidelines appear below. Concept notes for regions and/or countries not specifically listed may be submitted but PRM will prioritize for funding concept notes received for regions and countries specifically covered in the guidelines below:
  • Global – Improve and Strengthen Global Humanitarian Response: PRM will consider global concept notes that document and disseminate lessons learned and evidence from partners’ response to COVID-19 with the objective of improving the humanitarian system’s capacity to continue effective program delivery during a large-scale disease outbreak. This could include sector or response-wide tools, guidance, and evidence generation, with a focus on PRM’s populations of concern (refugees and asylum-seekers, internally displaced persons, stateless populations, conflict victims, and vulnerable migrants). Concept notes should address how investments will strengthen internal and system-wide approaches to the COVID-19 pandemic response and support institutional preparedness for future outbreaks.
  • Regional Specific Guidelines: Proposed programs should be for 1 or 2 years, and for a funding amount not less than $500,000 and not more than $5 million per year.
  • Country Specific Guidelines: Proposed programs should be for 1 or 2 years, and for a funding amount not less than $500,000 and not more than $5 million per year.
