This is a pilot year for PRM in using grants.gov. Therefore, the guidelines were posted on March 10, 2005 on the PRM website - www.state.gov/g/prm/fund/43222.htm - and the linkage to the e-grants portal could only be technically accomplished on April 22. Linkage to the portal provides applicants another route for sending proposals: for this fiscal year (2005), proposals can be sent directly to PRM/ECA.

PRM will consider proposals from international NGOs with proven track records in implementing IDP and refugee assistance programs. Higher consideration will be given to NGOs that have implemented PRM-funded projects, have experience implementing US government-funded shelter assistance projects, and have well-established operations in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia.
PRM ?s funding priority in the South Caucasus is to fund pilot projects that will attract larger follow-on funding from other donors to fully address the lingering housing problems for refugees and IDPs in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. In each country, the criterion listed below will be used when considering proposals:
ARMENIA ? Availability of matching funds to renovate collective centers that house the most vulnerable refugees, especially the elderly.
AZERBAIJAN ? Projects in areas that are not part of the GoAJ?s shelter assistance program in the next three years.
GEORGIA ?Projects, such as housing vouchers, that will get IDPs out of public-use facilities, such as schools, hospitals and clinics, so that these facilities could be repaired and put to their original or other public use, where possible.
