In 2012, USAID marked its 20th anniversary of the start of programs in Georgia.
Over the past 20 years, USAID has implemented numerous programs that have had positive impact on the daily lives of Georgians, from the children’s immunization program that began in the 90s and is now very successfully run by the Georgian government, to investments in energy infrastructure and support for reform that helped turn the lights back on in homes and businesses across the country. The $1 billion in assistance over the past four years was critical to ensuring Georgia’s recovery from the 2008 war.
Building on this successful partnership with Georgia, the U.S. Government will dedicate its resources to new and continuing USAID programs over the next five years to help enhance Georgia's democratic, free-market, Western orientation.
