The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is the United States’ government agency that leads international development and humanitarian assistance efforts to partner countries.

We work together with individuals, communities, and countries around the world to improve everyday lives. USAID efforts provide humanitarian assistance, reduce poverty, strengthen democratic governance, advance economic opportunities, and help achieve progress beyond programs.

In the 21st century we live in an interconnected world. Our work benefits people around the world, including those in the United States. Many of the issues that we are encountering in the United States, like pandemics, climate consequences, and threats to the rule of law, are issues that people around the world are also facing. USAID’s investment in communities around the world helps achieve sustainable development progress, advancing our collective security, health, and prosperity.
