USAID is advancing Georgia’s stated goals of building its prosperity, security, and democracy through a partnership that demonstrates the U.S. commitment to Georgia’s territorial integrity and inclusive economic growth.

USAID launched the five-year, $24 million USAID Resilient Communities Program designed to create jobs and improve the livelihoods of people living in over 90 communities alongside Georgian territory that is occupied by Russia.  USAID’s Assistant Administrator for Europe and Eurasia Erin E. McKee and Georgian government representatives attended the launch.

USAID funding will strengthen over 90 communities so that residents have greater ability to realize their full potential in a variety of sectors including helping them to find new opportunities to engage in Georgia’s transition to a “green economy,” for example, through the adoption of sustainable technologies to advance environmental and social well-being.

The U.S. government has been supporting Georgia’s prosperity and security for over 30 years. USAID is proud to partner with the Government of Georgia, civil society, and other local organizations to provide the foundation for inclusive, sustained, and private sector-led development and diversified employment opportunities for Georgians.
