In fiscal year 2014, President Obama proposed common sense reforms that would enable the United States to reach up to four million more people in food crises around the world with the same resources, by making the successful USAID Title II program more flexible, efficient and effective. This year, the President’s request builds on positive reforms enacted in the Agricultural Act of 2014, which will enable USAID to reach more people annually with the same resources, mainly in chronically food-insecure communities. These changes reduce costs and offer USAID a wider range of programming options that can improve program outcomes and help achieve more sustainable results, particularly within development programs.
