The FATA Institutional Strengthening Project strengthens the ability of the Secretariat and the Development Authority of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) to plan, manage, and oversee stabilization and development activities and to govern more effectively and responsively to citizens' priority concerns.

The FATA Infrastructure Project (FIP) constructs roads to connect remote communities to markets and facilitate access to essential services; restores electricity infrastructure; and improves access to water for drinking and farming. This program is also supporting the construction of the Kalat­Quetta-­Chaman road in Balochistan, an important cross-­border trade route between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The Civilian Victims Support Project assists non-military, non-police, non-combatant, and non-civil-service populations in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) who have been injured or disabled as a result of terrorist-related acts of violence or during the military response to the insurgency.
