Proposals must support one or more of the following program areas:

  • Humanitarian Protection and Assistance
  • Interim and Durable Solutions

Proposals must focus on one or more of the following sectors:

  • Protection (including child protection; gender-based violence (GBV) prevention and response; Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS); support for vulnerable groups)
