Rapid Response Fund (RRF)
The RRF supports national and international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to respond to natural and man-made disasters in South Sudan and Abyei Area. IOM, in close collaboration with USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA), supports partner organizations that are working in South Sudan and Abyei and have the capacity to swiftly implement specific emergency interventions that respond to the immediate needs of affected populations.
The RRF prioritizes activities that do not last for more than three months but will also consider longer implementation periods should there be a clear need.
The RRF accepts proposals on a rolling basis in response to emergency situations emerging in the last month. The current round of the RRF will accept applications through March 2017.
The RRF will provide immediate access to funds for emergency humanitarian activities in the following sectors:
- Emergency shelter and non-food items (ES/NFI)
- Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)
- Emergency medical services (Health)
- Information management and coordination
