The Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Budget request for USAID defends our national security interests and addresses the challenges to American leadership abroad. It acknowledges that U.S. assistance must be more effective while continuing to advance our foreign policy and economic interests – as well as our values. Strong American leadership will promote development and provide lifesaving assistance, along with diplomacy and defense efforts, to support U.S. national interests. USAID helps to build a more stable, resilient, and prosperous world, and assists vulnerable populations. We make Americans safer at home and abroad by addressing such challenges as extreme poverty, food insecurity, pandemic disease, conflict, violence, and poor governance that can foster violent extremism, instability, transnational crime and other security threats.
