USAID is a business-focused development agency focused on results.
We understand that humanitarian assistance is both a gift and an investment on behalf of the American public. It contributes to a future that all of us will share. We are constantly looking for ways to work smarter.
See how our work - on behalf of the American public - spans the globe:
Key Accomplishments: The United States Agency for International Development is the lead U.S. Government agency working in foreign aid and development. Here are some of the most recent and significant USAID accomplishments.
AidScape: USAID’s central source for U.S. foreign assistance data, international socioeconomic data, and data-driven analysis in support of USAID goals.
Dollars to Results: View USAID investments and illustrative results in many of the countries where USAID works.
Development Experience Clearinghouse: USAID's Development Experience Clearinghouse (DEC), the largest online resource for USAID-funded technical and project materials, makes nearly 200,000 items available for review or download, and continuously grows with more than 1000 items added each month.
ForeignAssistance.gov: ForeignAssistance.gov shows the multi-dimensional picture of U.S. foreign assistance through a highly visual and interactive website. The website makes it easy for all users to find and retrieve the data they need.
The Development Data Library is USAID's public repository of Agency-funded, machine readable data.
USAID’s Evaluation Policy sets ambitious standards for high-quality, relevant and transparent evaluations.
USAID Development Policy: USAID policies, strategies, frameworks and visions are developed in close partnership with Washington bureaus, international field missions and other partners. They are based on analysis, evidence and past experience, clarify the agency's corporate position in key areas and provide guidance to the field.
Budget and Spending: The President’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 Budget for USAID supports the President’s commitment to serve the needs of American citizens, ensure their safety, promote their prosperity, preserve their rights, and defend their values, as outlined in the President’s National Security Strategy. It advances U.S. foreign policy goals through targeted investments that protect U.S. national security, and furthers American interests at home and abroad.
Performance and Financial Reporting: USAID complies with the Government Performance and Results Act Modernization Act of 2010 and with annually updated guidance from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) by producing a series of mandated reports.
