Members of the committee, the Fiscal Year 2019 request for USAID is approximately $16.8 billion. We acknowledge that this request will not provide enough resources to meet every humanitarian need or seize every development opportunity. Indeed, no budget request ever has. Instead, it’s an effort to balance fiscal needs at home with our leadership role on the world stage.

Turning to our ongoing Redesign, I greatly appreciate the thoughts and input that you and your staff have provided. To date, our team has had 53 separate Hill engagements and 145 external stakeholder engagements as we try to shape what the USAID of tomorrow will look like. I remain committed to working closely with you to ensure that your ideas are reflected in this work.
