The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has begun directly funding Serbian organizations to strengthen their capacity and use USAID assets more efficiently. Rather than hire international companies to run local programs, as has been USAID's practice, USAID/Serbia has recently given direct grants to a number of Serbian organizations.  Direct assistance recognizes the increased capabilities of these organizations and places full responsibility for managing their programs in their hands.  USAID expects to make additional grants in the future.
