Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF)
DATES: June 2002 - June 2020
PARTNERS: Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD)
USAID supports the ARTF, which is a partnership between the international community and the Afghan government for the improved effectiveness of the reconstruction effort. ARTF is administered by the World Bank and all support is on-budget, directed through the Ministry of Finance to the relevant line ministries. Since early 2002, 30 donors have pledged more than $4.3 billion, making the ARTF the largest contributor to the Afghan budget – for both operating costs and development programs. ARTF’s support for national priority programs, for costs of government operations, and for the policy reform agenda is contributing to the achievement of the Afghanistan National Development Strategy goals. USAID has obligated $971 million to date, of which, $590 million has been preferenced in support of the National Solidary Program implemented through the Ministry of Rural Reconstruction and Development.
